Ontario police rescues 43 modern slaves from Mexico

The Canadian police said they had released 43 "modern slaves" from Mexico, who were allegedly forced to work as cleaning workers on holiday properties in Ontario.

The police began investigations last year and issued 12 search warrants last week.

Rick Barnum of Ontario police said the victims had been lured to Canada because they believed that they would be offered legitimate employment opportunities.

He says that instead they were forced to live in "miserable" conditions and pay large sums to their alleged traffickers. Barnum says they sometimes only get $ 50 a month if they pay their employers fees.

Barnum says criminal charges could come later.

Since the rescue, workers and accommodations have been offered to workers in a Ontario resort.
