Migrants staying in Monastir, Sardinia, were put to work illegally

Police officials from the Sardinian city of Cagliari say they have dismantled a criminal organization that exploited more than 50 migrants who were recruited in hosting centers to be illegally employed and exploited. Migrants staying in the reception center at Monastir in Sardinia were approached by recruiters who put them to work illegally in the fields.

The migrants worked harvesting artichokes and other vegetables for up to ten hours a day, but they were also employed in the vineyards of prestigious wine producers. Here, they were paid just €5 an hour, they claimed.

Investigators said that more than 50 people were exploited in this way by a criminal organization, dismantled in an operation on September 20 by police from the Sardinian city of Cagliari.
