Southwell and Partners’ managing director Philippa Southwell spoke to BBC about Albanian nationals’ alleged abuse of the Modern Slavery Act, alongside Albanian prime minister Edi Rama and former conservative MP Rachel Maclean.

Philippa raised concerns about the government’s proposal to single out Albanian nationals in the legislation, and reminds us that there are already safeguards in place to prevent abuse of the system.

She also called attention to the fact that exploitation is not limited to children and women in sexual exploitation. Modern slavery is a wide issue, which hits a large portion of males in various forms of exploitation including forced criminality.
