Four people have gone on trial accused of trafficking women into Glasgow for prostitution and slavery.

Three men and a woman are alleged to have brought more than a dozen women from Slovakia and held them in “slavery or servitude”. Vojtech Gombar, 61, Anil Wagle, 37, Jana Sandorova, 28, and Ratislav Adam, 31, deny the charges against them at the High Court in Glasgow.

All four, who live at various addresses in Govanhill, have pleaded not guilty. Centring on addresses in Govanhill, it is alleged that between 2011 and 2017 the four conspired “to commit crime of trafficking people for exploitation and trafficking in prostitution”.

Mr Gombar, Ms Sandorova and Mr Adam also face charges of forcing women to work as prostitutes and managing a brothel.

Much of the evidence will be led from witnesses who are in Slovakia.

The trial continues.
