FOUR members of a trafficking gang have been found guilty of selling women for prostitution and slavery.

Vojtech Gombar, 61, Anil Wagle, 37, Jana Sandorova, 28, and Ratislav Adam, 31, denied trafficking women into Scotland from Slovakia.

But a jury at the High Court in Glasgow today returned a guilty verdict for crimes carried out between 2011 to 2017.

Over several weeks the court heard how young women and teenage girls - some who were pregnant - were coerced into travelling to the UK with the promise of better lives.

In one case, the court heard how a young woman was sold for £10,000 outside Primark on Argyle Street.

The pregnant victim was then held in a Govanhill flat for around a month before escaping by jumping from a window.

Other girls spoke of being sold to Pakistani men for sham marriages to try to obtain visas for their 'husbands'.

Some 14 women were named as victims of the gang - but police believe there may be many more.
