A West Vancouver millionaire wanted for alleged human trafficking and smuggling will appear in Vancouver provincial court next week after having been apprehended mid-July. RCMP arrested fifty-five-year old Mumtaz Ladha at Vancouver's international airport July 19 upon her return from a trip to Tanzania. A Canada-wide warrant was issued for Ladha's arrest in May for one charge each of human smuggling and human trafficking. Ladha allegedly hired a 21-year-old African woman in 2008, promising her a work visa and a job in a Vancouver area hair salon. Instead, when the woman arrived in Canada, Ladha allegedly confiscated her passport, gave her table scraps to eat and forced her to work long hours doing menial chores with no pay in her West Vancouver home. A year later the woman went to a shelter where she was given support. RCMP and West Vancouver police began an investigation shortly after. An RCMP spokesman close to the investigation into Ladha said in May she was respected member of the community and had no previous criminal record. Ladha was released following her arrest on a promise to appear in court Aug. 10. Source: The Province, a Vancouver paper. I say, while condemning the perpetrator, the naivity of the Tanzanians is legendary. How can one accept to leave his family, home everything to accompany someone with no guarantees. Just for a chance to go 'majuu'. Once a French philosopher Rousseau said 'Slavery is exactly what the slaves like'
