Greater Manchester Police has charged three people with modern slavery offences after they were accused of trafficking Hungarian women into the UK and forcing them into prostitution.

Andras Lakatos, 31, and Jenone Orgona, 56, of The Gatehaus, Bradford and Laszlo Petrovics (born 20/10/78) of Ashton Road, Oldham have all been charged with human trafficking and controlling prostitution offences. They appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court on Saturday (27 February) and were remanded in custody.

They will next appear at Manchester Crown Court on 14 March. In 2016, several women were trafficked from Hungary into the UK, where they were forced to become prostitutes.
