Father and two sons in court charged with keeping slaves
A FATHER and two sons appeared in court today charged with keeping slaves on their family farm.
Daniel Doran, 66, and his sons David Doran, 42, and Thomas Doran, 36, are accused of slavery at their horse farm in the Welsh countryside.
The three men face charges of false imprisonment, conspiracy to hold a person in servitude and conspiracy to require a person to perform forced labour.
Youngest son Thomas Doran is also charged with kidnapping by force or fraud.
Their arrests follow a police raid at a farm at Marshfield, near Newport, where a Polish man was found.
The three members of the Doran family did not enter a plea and were remanded in custody until next week when they will appear at Newport Crown Court.
Their lawyers said the trio would be applying for bail at next week's hearing.
A total of seven people have now been arrested on suspected slavery charges after police launched Operation Imperial.
