Modern slavery investigation in Geneva
A family in Geneva is being investigated for alleged modern slavery.
According to Le Temps newspaper, the family – originally from India – brought staff over from the country on tourist visas, confiscated their passports and forced them to work for 18 hours a day 7 days a week.
One of the staff members says he didn’t leave the house in Cologny for 10 years.
Staff say they were being paid between CHF 140-520 a month.
A police search found CHF 300,000 in cash in the house.
The family also now faces a tax investigation as they claim they’re based in Monaco, although they seem to have spent all their time in Geneva.
