    Doctor who 'trafficked' Tanzanian woman is first person charged with modern-day slavery


    By Daily Mail Reporter
    10th September 2010


    A doctor has become the first person in the UK charged with modern-day slavery after allegedly smuggling a woman in to the country and forcing her to work around the clock.

    Saeeda Khan, 68, is accused of bringing the 46-year-old from Tanzania to her £500,000 London home.

    The alleged victim was apparently made to work for nothing at the property on Whitmore Road, Harrow.

    Khan was bailed to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday.
    She stands charged with trafficking people for exploitation, contrary to section four of the Asylum and Immigration Act 2004.

    Section four of the Asylum and Immigration Act is designed to catch all those involved in the trafficking process.

    The law makes it an offence to arrange, or even facilitate, the arrival of a person in the UK, knowing the individual is likely to be exploited. It also covers those who recruit, transport, harbour or receive the victim, as well as those involved in taking someone out of the country.

    An offence can be committed even where the intended exploitation has not actually taken place.
    Slave trading has been outlawed in Britain since the 19th century.

    However, the UK remains a major destination for trafficked women. Human rights organisations claim up to 1,000 people are made to work as slaves.
