Members of a gang who forced Vietnamese girls and women into slavery in nail bars in Britain have been jailed for a total of nine years in what police believe is the first case of its kind.Nguyen and Nguyen were convicted of facilitating the trafficking of victims to work in nail bars.Britain's Vietnamese community has set up nail bars across the country but experts say traffickers have piggybacked off their success.Britain's anti-slavery commissioner Kevin Hyland has called for tighter regulation of nail bars and said a government estimate that there are 13,000 victims of forced labor, sexual exploitation and domestic servitude in the U.K. is just the tip of the iceberg.The Modern Slavery Act of 2015 introduced life sentences for traffickers, offered better protection for people at risk of being enslaved, and forced companies to check their supply chains for forced labor.
