Country: the Netherlands
Court: Zwolle District Court
Sentenced date: 29/04/2008
Purpose of exploitation: Forced labour or services
The Defendant, owner of a factory in Netherlands, recruited, transported, transferred and housed several illegal Indian men with the purpose of exploitation and profit from this exploitation.
The victims had to work six days a week, frequently for longer than 8 hours a day, they were paid €800 a month with deduction of € 100 rent a month, and they had no payment for overwork. The victims performed heavy work for a wage that was not in line with market rates.
The Court declares the guilt of the defendant for the offence of giving instructions or exercising effective control over the committing of punishable acts by a legal entity since he was the owner of the factory. The defendant in several occasions willfully submitted a tax return by the Dutch tax law incompletely and incorrectly, which resulted in too little tax being levied.
