Two people have been remanded in custody after appearing in court charged with modern slavery offences.

Jan Burianski, 32, and his partner Agnieszka Burianska, 31, both of Pullman Road, Sneinton, were arrested at their home on Wednesday (12 September) following an investigation by Nottinghamshire Police's Modern Slavery Team.

They appeared at Nottingham Magistrates' Court yesterday (Friday 14 September) and were each charged with one offence of forced labour and one offence of human trafficking. They were remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 12 October.

A 55-year-old woman was also arrested on Wednesday as part of the investigation and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Sergeant Mike Ebbins, of Nottinghamshire Police's Modern Slavery Team, said: "Nottinghamshire Police takes modern slavery seriously and we would urge anyone who has suspicions about people being forced to work for long hours without control of their own finances to call us on 101, or the national Modern Slavery Helpline on 08000 121 700."

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
