33 Romanian farm workers who were working in slave-like conditions were freed by the Greek police in southern Greece last week, a police source announced last Friday, AFP informs. Two Romanians and a Greek national were arrested near Kurtesi village (Peloponnesus) and an APB was placed on three other Romanians. The farm workers were recruited to harvest strawberries from greenhouses after they were promised EUR 25 per day, accommodations included. Once there, armed persons forced them to work and to sleep in improvised shelters on a field. The crime group that exploited and brutalized them was also taking their salaries. According to Realitatea.net, the 35 Romanians returned to the country at the end of last week. They said they went through terrible moments for a week: they were held at gunpoint, they worked without water and food for 11 hours a day and slept in tents.
