A British couple were today behind bars after making a fortune from one of that country’s biggest people smuggling and sex-trafficking empires. Using a vast array of false identities and flights paid for by cloned credit cards, failed asylum seekers Gavril Dulghieru and his wife, Tamara, smuggled hundreds of desperate young eastern European women into the country. But for some the place they believed had streets "paved with gold" ended in a nightmare of seedy brothels and "enforced prostitution". London’s Isleworth Crown Court was told that dreams of well-paid jobs and freedom from the grinding poverty they thought they had fled were replaced by a red light ordeal of up to 30 customers a day.
