Longsight men charged with false imprisonment

Two men have been charged with false imprisonment after a Latvian woman was allegedly trafficked to the UK and imprisoned in Manchester.

A Latvian woman told police on 19 August her daughter, aged 36, had been held against her will for 14 months.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said it was contacted by Interpol and found the woman in Longsight two days later.

Mohammed Akmal and Naeem Kauser, both 46 and of Longsight, are due before Manchester Crown Court on Friday.
