Two men and a woman have been convicted of trafficking victims to Scotland for sex.

Qin Huang, 31, Xiao Min, 38, and Guolei Huang, 35, pleaded guilty to human trafficking and brothel keeping at the High Court in Glasgow on Tuesday, May 28.

The group, who operated in Glasgow and Edinburgh, are due to be sentenced on June 25.

Police Scotland worked in partnership with the Home Office's Criminal and Financial Investigation Team while receiving assistance from the Metropolitan Police and Cambridgeshire Police during the investigation.

Detective Inspector Mark Dines said: “Human trafficking is a despicable crime which has an immeasurable long-term impact on its victims.

“We are committed to working with our partners to conduct thorough investigations, identify those responsible and protect vulnerable victims from harm.

“During this operation we worked in partnership with the Home Office’s Criminal and Financial Investigation Team and received assistance from officers from the Metropolitan Police and Cambridgeshire Police.

“We will continue our efforts to combat human trafficking and information from people within our communities is vital to help us identify those involved.

“I ask anyone with information or concerns about the welfare of someone they suspect may have been trafficked to contact us on 101.”
