Shocking story: 39 immigrant deaths
« on: October 23, 2019, 11:42:AM »
It shows the lengths to which some people will go to enter the United Kingdom, the need for a new Europe-wide economic rethink similar to the 1948 Marshall Plan and a concerted effort to crack down on the people-traffickers whose greed for making a fast buck has led to such an appalling loss of life.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-50150070

Yes Steve, horrendous! Just trying to imagine a line of 39 people - terrible!

I am wondering about the guy they arrested first, surely he had to have alerted the authorities?

Yes, and more likely dumped his corpses at the Grays Industrial Estate when he realized what happened. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-50196265

That chap lied. He'd said the " screaming and dead bodies would stay with him for a long time ". There'd have been no screaming as those poor souls would have been dead when he picked them up.

This trailer was one of three ! Two lots survived.

Kind of shot himself in the foot there because if he heard screaming and did nothing to help, then that's murder. I agree they must have been dead long before he picked them up. If he knew they were in there, he could have least have checked straight after leaving the port.

What gets me is that they know those parts are used for human trafficking, so why the hell don't they do more checks. Insane!

I wonder how the migrants from these countries lay their hands on £30k in the first place. More likely they are loaned the money and are enslaved to an agent for the duration of their time in the UK. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/uk/essex-migrant-deaths-family-begged-woman-feared-dead-not-to-go-1.4064119

The money is borrowed on the strength that those who've crossed continents in the hope of employment will then send money home. While living here in cramped conditions, some in makeshift sheds/garages/outhouses or uninhabitable properties let out by rogue landlords.
