first_imgA ROMANIAN mafia gang paid teenage boys just a fiver a day for forced labour here in Co Donegal.Undercover gardai spent days observing the sickening operation in which the boys were treated as slaves by the mafia boss.The top criminal gang – which also runs brothels in Letterkenny – made the boys carry out manual labour for up to 14 hours every day. In return five teenagers got €5 to spend on food for themselves.They were forced to live in horrific conditions in a flat in the town.The alarm was raised when one of the boys rang the Romanian embassy in Dublin pleading for help.Gardaí responded, observed the operation and then moved in to rescue the teenagers who were being held here against their will. Four of the boys have since been reunited with loved ones and family. The teenagers were “delighted” at being rescued.Investigations are continuing into the shameful slavery scandal, and how the boys were flown into Ireland and then sold on as slaves.They were threatened and beaten when they complained and passports were confiscated.Most of them had very little English. REVEALED: ROMANIAN BOY ‘SLAVES’ GOT JUST €5 A DAY was last modified: September 13th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGardailetterkennyRomaniaslaveslast_img
