A POLISH COUPLE who forced women into prostitution and ran a string of brothels across London are to be sentenced today.

Polish nationals Kamil Niewiadomski, 31, and Ewa Nosal, 30, posted adverts for escorts on a Polish website.

When applicants came to work for the pair, their photos were posted on adult services websites in the UK.

The women were fined for being late and encouraged to engage in unprotected sex with customers.

Bookings for the women were taken at a call centre based at a flat, with the £120 an hour sessions taking place at a number of brothels.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police Service Human Trafficking Unit began investigating the pair after several victims rang the unit’s 24-hour helpline.

This culminated in a series of search warrants being executed in January at the brothels and Niewiadomski and Nosal’s home address, which they shared with their child and Niewiadomski’s parents.

Detectives seized around £24,000 in cash found beside Niewiadomski’s bed and within a safe hidden in his wardrobe. They also recovered almost 50 identity cards for Polish men and women, suggesting that all these had been exploited or worked for the defendants.

Police believe the actual number of victims are far in excess of the numbers of cards found.

Officers recovered 120 mobile phones used to take bookings for the different men at the call centre.

Both have pleaded guilty and will be sentenced today.
