U.S. charges couple in scheme to hold Filipino workers in forced labor

This case is being prosecuted by trial attorney Susan French of the Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and Assistant U.S. Attorney Shaniek Maynard of the Southern District of Florida.
“We thank the various U.S. government agencies handling the case,” stated ConGen Macatangay.

“Most specially the Filipino organizations who worked with the Philippine Honorary Consulate in providing financial and food assistance before the Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking (FCAHT) came to assist and take care of the Filipino workers.”

The FCAHT provided housing, financial assistance, education and food to enable the Filipino workers to get back on their feet.

The organization was created in 2004 by Anna Rodriguez, who has extensive experience in how to identify victims, provide advocacy, and understand how to pursue justice for victims based on her experience in law enforcement, assistance for prosecution, and active participation delivering the human trafficking case law.

"We are thankful for the extra efforts of Anna Rodriguez in helping the Filipino workers recover and be on their feet again," stated Dr. Macatangay. "The role of Ms. Rodriguez and FCAHT are crucial in helping victims of human trafficking."

“The efforts of the Philippine Honorary Consulate on this case reflect the strong efforts of the Philippine government in clamping down on human trafficking," stated ConGen Macatangay. “We did this with the support of Philippine Ambassador to the U.S. Willy C. Gaa.” (With reports from USDOJ, ICE, Basta Pinoy News
