Commenting after the discovery of a cannabis factory after a fire at a premises on the Derrywilligan Road near Bessbrook,Sinn Féin councillor Declan Murphy said that attention was drawn to the property due to the fire and he has further alleged that human trafficking has been linked to the alleged enterprise.
The local Councillor explained,
“While I welcome the discovery of this cannabis factory I am very concerned with the added dimension of human trafficking.
Modern day slavery is happening right under our noses and it is extremely important that we as a community do everything we can to stamp it out.
The PSNI must use all its resources to track down the criminal gangs behind human trafficking and slavery and take the individuals involved off our streets.”
