"The workers, most of whom come from poor countries in Africa and Asia, are forced to work for up to 20 hours a day for as little as 10p an hour.

Their employers routinely confiscate their passports so they cannot run away, make them sleep on the floor and ban them from leaving the house, the investigation disclosed."

This is the 21st century, you would think the world would be more civilized. These poor people must be rescued and the Slavers prosecuted.

I have always hated this diplomatic immunity crap..

If you are in a foreign country regardless of why, you should have to abide by their rules..

How many crimes worldwide do you think are commited by these, so called diplomats that go unpunished???

It's sickening..Rapes, murders, you name it, they get away with it...

I watched a Channel 4 Dispatches documentary on this and was equally disgusted by what was uncovered. However, motions are in place to redefine the levels of diplomatic immunity which could lead to successful criminal prosecution against people for actions and behavior on private property that has no connection to diplomatic services. In essence, keeping a house maid is not relevant to diplomatic service and if such a person was mistreated, criminal charges could be brought.
