He said beforehand that the case included 'exploitation and the harvesting of an organ'

"The case started on 5 May 2022 when the complainant introduced himself at Staines Police headquarters and guaranteed he had been shipped to this country with the end goal of his kidney being taken out.

"He showed up on twentieth February 2022 and was taken to Royal Free Medical clinic where tests were done.

"For the reason he was there he didn't agree to the taking of his kidney.

"He got back to the house he was remaining and his treatment changed decisively.

"He depicted being dealt with successfully as a slave."
