Kreshnik Dida and Avdi Dida in Southampton Magistrates Court on slavery charges
TWO MEN have appeared in court this morning charged with holding another person in slavery after police targeted a car wash in Southampton.
Kreshnik Dida, 27, of Southdene Road, Chandler's Ford and Avdi Dida, 26, of Portsmouth Road, Southampton are both accused of ten counts each of knowingly holding another person in slavery or servitude.
They both appeared at Southampton Magistrates Court and were bailed to appear at Southampton Crown Court next month.
Ten men were identified as potential victims of exploitation and taken to a reception centre and are continuing to receive emotional and practical support.
