Plymouth Czech people trafficking trial delayed again
The trial of five Czechs accused of trafficking men into Britain has been further delayed.
The jury was today due to hear further evidence against two men and three women, members of an extended Roma family, who allegedly housed compatriots in their homes for economic exploitation.
The hearing was first adjourned on Monday because of concerns about one of the interpreters.
Judge Darlow told the jury that the court had “very serious concerns as to the quality and fairness of the interpretation” provided by the interpreter assisting alleged trafficking victim Josef Bukovinsky.
The case has now been further put off until tomorrow.
