Three men in court after human trafficking raid in Blackburn

THREE men will appear in court today after being charged in relation to human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Blackburn.

All three men, who were arrested when police raided a house in Accrington Road at around 7.45pm on Wednesday.

Ionut Stan, 31, of Accrington Road, Blackburn was charged with keeping/managing a brothel used for prostitution.

Cristian Stan, 30, of Accrington Road, Blackburn was charged with keeping/managing a brothel used for prostitution.

Cristian Vasile, 33, of no fixed address was charged with keeping/managing a brothel used for prostitution and possession of a class A controlled drug (heroin).

The raid came as part of an ongoing police enquiry into human trafficking.

Two women in their twenties were found at the house and are believed to have been brought to the UK from Romania.

They are now in a place of safety and are being spoken to by specially trained officers.

DI Mark Vaughton said: “These arrests are part of our on-going work under Operation Proteus, in which we have a dedicated team working to identify both the victims and perpetrators of trafficking and slavery across Lancashire.

“This is a complex area of policing, but this activity shows our commitment to tackling this issue and I want to reassure the community that we are here to listen to your concerns. I would urge anyone who suspects that someone is being treated in this way to contact us.”

Anyone with information or concerns should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

THREE Romanian men who trafficked women to Blackburn to work as prostitutes have been jailed for a total of 10 years. Preston Crown Court heard how ringleader Cristian Vasile ran three brothels in the town where at least four women worked. Brothers Ionut Stan, 31, and Cristian Stan, 32, managed the ‘day-to-day running’ of the business, taking bookings from punters and acted as bodyguards.

Judge Mark Brown, The Honorary Recorder of Preston, said the gang were running a ‘profitable business’ with the three men having sent around £70,000 back home to family and friends in the space of 21 months.

The court was told the case is thought to be one of the first in the country where police have managed to secure a conviction against human traffickers without the support of the victims. The case, revolved around two women, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

Prosecutor Michael Mayer told the court how police raided the main brothel in the town’s Accrington Road on May 1 after neighbours reported seeing men entering and leaving throughout the day in night.

Inside officers found the Stans, two women who said they were working as prostitutes, beds in every room of the house and other material associated with the sex trade, including ‘menus’ of the acts the women were willing to perform.

Mr Mayer said: “There were also large quantities of mobile phones in the house which were ringing constantly. Clearly business was booming.”
