French district attorneys claimed on Monday they are examining insurance claims that a Saudi royal prince maintained 7 staff members in a state of modern enslavement at an apartment or condo he had outside Paris.
The questions for human trafficking was opened after the women, the majority of from the Philippines, filed complaints of modern slavery in October 2019, claimed the district attorneys’ office in the suburb city of Nanterre.
The maids had actually been hired in Saudi Arabia and helped the royal prince and his family there as well as in France, a resource near the case, that rejected to be called, included.
They obviously ran away throughout a journey to France, the resource said.
The supposed misuse occurred in 2008, 2013 as well as 2015 at the home in the classy Neuilly-sur-Seine suburb west of the capital.
Prosecutors listened to statement from the women a couple of weeks ago, but the prince has yet to be questioned considering that he is not presently in France, the source said.
Some were needed to sleep on the floor and hardly had time to eat while offering the prince’s 4 children, according to Le Parisien newspaper.
“The very first time we met with them, what was shocking to see was that they were hungry. They were weeping with appetite,” Anick Fougeroux, head of state of the help team SOS Esclaves (“Servants”), told the paper.
