Slave drivers face jail for restaurant sweatshop

OWNERS of a Chinese restaurant are each facing 68 years in jail for keeping workers in slave-like conditions.

The staff of the Denia restaurant were kept locked up in horrific conditions when they were off-duty and forced to work in a ‘sweatshop’ environment.

As well as working seven days a week, the employees – many of whom were illegal – had to live in tiny, filthy attic rooms with no ventilation.

The owners will be tried for exploitation of workers and false imprisonment.
