Three held after woman kept as ‘feudal slave’


THREE people suspected of subjecting a young Moroccan woman to slave-like conditions of domestic servitude have been arrested by police in Navarre.
The woman was given to a family in Holland who are accused of exploiting her by making her work long hours for very little pay.
National Police in Spain described the employment arrangement as “almost feudal.”
The woman had no contract of employment, rights or permits. She was also forced to give most of her meagre income to her father.
When police in Holland became aware of the woman’s situation they alerted colleagues in Spain and a joint operation was launched resulting in the arrests of three Moroccans in Navarre.
Dutch police believe the Netherlands-based family had also exploited two other women.
