A British couple have been found guilty of enslaving a Nigerian man for 24 years, London's Metropolitan Police said Tuesday.
Emmanuel Edet, 61, and his wife, Antan, 58, were convicted of holding a person in slavery, child cruelty and assisting unlawful immigration, following their arrest last year. In 1989, the couple transported a Nigerian 13-year-old to the United Kingdom without his family's permission under an agreement that he would work in their home in exchange for payment and schooling.
However, authorities determined the man, who was not identified, was not paid for the "arduous labor" he performed for the couple, which consisted of working in their five homes for as long as 17 hours a day cooking, cleaning and taking care of their two children.
Police said that the man was forbidden from eating in the same room as the family, called a "parasite" and told that if he reported the Edets to authorities, he would be arrested for being in the country illegally.

Those “Brits” — still slaving after all these years.
See! This is why Scotland was to separate. Those “British” are terrible people. The only thing good about them are their fish & chips. /sarc
There is only one solution to all this. Britain should import even more folks who have absolutely no traditional British values. Because there is strength in diversity.

Well that’s not Cricket, eh wot?
They’re blaming their actions on climate change.
Except for the "five homes" part, this is not all that unusual for people from several countries in which buying a poor child from his or her parents - usually promising the child will be educated in return for domestic help - is part of the "native culture."
I figured as much. British my arse.
These people need to be sent to a course to acknowledge their Muslim privilege.
