A deaf girl from Pakistan who was kept as a slave for nine years by a millionaire couple from Salford is to receive £100,000 in compensation.
Ilyas and Tallat Ashar were jailed last October after the girl was found in their cellar in 2009. The victim was repeatedly raped and forced to work at the family's properties as a child for nine years.
Manchester Crown Court ruled the couple must also repay £42,000 of benefits falsely claimed in her name.
The Ashars must also pay £321,000 towards the cost of their trials.
Now in her 20s, the victim, who cannot be named, is believed to have been as young as 10 when she was trafficked into the UK.
The girl was found in a cellar in 2009
She was found sleeping in a cot bed in the Ashars' cellar by trading standards staff, who were investigating allegations of money laundering.
Police said the victim's details were used on bank accounts linked to the couple.
But when officers tried to speak to her at the house, they realised she was incapable of communication and moved her to a place of safety.
Police said she could not read or write, and have accepted the benefit fraud was carried out by the Ashars.
|OK so what crimes can you see have been committed.|
Fraud to name but a few.
My question is why are these monsters not deported penniless. They are not worthy of their British passports!
WE DONT NEED THESE BASTARDS HERE!!!
