    Seems like any kind of BS story will get non EU nationals residency here.

    Somewhat unsurprisingly, they're Nigerian - although the Greens would probably describe them as the "new Irish"?

    Well done the gardaí.

    Unless there's a rash of only Nigerian traffickers, that really doesn't factor with me.
    The focus should be on the success in prosecuting them and saving those poor women.
    We have multiple gangs in this country from all over the world as well as our own scum.
    Trafficking by Nigerian gangs is huge across Europe as are trafficking gangs from other countries and the only people who should be the focus are the victims.
    It's utterly horrific.

    Good job AGS.

    do the nigerians control the fishing industry too?

    or do we not arrest 'true' irish people who are trafficking?

    Are we dehumanizing brown people again today. I know they're criminals, and great they were convicted for such a horrible thing, but animals? Cast an awful light about what you are really looking to stir up with this thread OP.

    These indentured servitude schemes are not new - in Colonial era America it used to be an acceptable legal practice. Should never be allowed to happen again of course, but I hope you're not trying to act as though this type of plot is a Nigerian creation.

    We, Homo Sapiens, the last time I looked, fit the definition of animal and the OP has made no mention of colour so perhaps back up\off

    An animal is a living creature such as a dog, lion, or rabbit, rather than a bird, fish, insect, or human being. ... a habitat for plants and animals. 3. countable noun. Any living creature, including a human being, can be referred to as an animal.

    What would be interesting is crime rates by original nationality/ethnic minority groupings, ignoring the barrier created by Alan Shatter's mega citizenship drive?

    Some over the top comments generalising about Nigerians in here.

    Nice to see a conviction for trafficking. The entire prostitution industry needs to be looked at. There is a website where prostitutes/traffickers advertise and its as easy as making a call and organising a meet. Given how easy it is to catch people, it's strange that you never really hear of any stings. These girls were probably advertised on such websites. A guard could have posed undercover, made an arrest and the beans may have been spilled there and then. I know the guards are underfunded but it's a slam dunk catching these people and disrupting the business. Literally within an hour they could have someone in cuffs and ready to talk. Although to be honest I'm not entirely sure of the nitty gritty of what's legal and what's not legal in terms of prostitution. This is definitely a good step and sets a precedent.

    It's not an Irish thing and we don't want it.

    Excuse me?
    I asked an honest question.

    Hazel is constantly on about how racist the Irish are, BLM is at it to as is antifa.

    This was an honest question and not attacking any posters on here or a personal attack on anyone.

    the worse animals are the customers who made it a profitable enterprise.

    I don't agree. The customers may not be aware that the women are unwilling participants. There was a thread in the ask me anything I read recently where a woman stayed that she made a good living as a sex worker and she seems empowered in the current situation which is without regulation how is a customer supposed to differentiate between an unwilling participant and a willing one ?

    Yeah, no other agency here or abroad ever falls for a faked passport

    You would imagine ..
    And then you would decide that the customers were worse than human traffickers for not seeing this difference that you imagine.

    Customers are probably drunk and lonely they might feel regret afterwards but I doubt that makes them worse than the human traffickers.
