Former Deloitte employee guilty of sex trafficking

Kunal Chaudhary awaits sentence after human trafficking conviction

A FORMER Deloitte senior manager has been found guilty of human trafficking after a hearing at Croydon Crown Court.

Kunal Chaudhary, who worked at the Big Four’s firm’s Spinningfields offices in Manchester, deceived mainly Hungarian women into coming to the UK for what they believed were administrative, cleaning or babysitting jobs. Instead, they were forced into prostitution at brothels in London, the Manchester Evening News reports.

In all, the gang Chaudary belonged to were found to control around 120 women, from whom they confiscated passports in order to restrict their movements.

Chaudhary denied any wrongdoing but was found guilty after a trial at Croydon Crown Court. He was convicted, along with three accomplices, of conspiracy to traffic persons into the UK for sexual exploitation, conspiracy to control prostitution and concealing criminal property. He will be sentenced with his co-defendants at a later date.

A spokesman for Deloitte said: “Kunal Chaudhary is a former employee of the firm. The police have made it clear that these terrible offences were not in any way connected with his employment at Deloitte. As soon as the charges were confirmed he was suspended without pay and following his conviction he was dismissed without notice.”
