The Congress of South African Trade Union in the Free State has expressed its shock at the arrest of two foreign nationals who have been arrested after holding seven young girls against their will in Bloemfontein.

The girls aged between 18 and 20-years-old were rescued after a whistle blower alerted police about a group of girls being used as sex slaves at a flat in the area.

The two Ugandan nationals aged 24 and 27-years-old has been charged with dealing in drugs as well as possible charges of human trafficking and sexual offences.

Cosatu Provincial Secretary Monyatso oa Mahlatsi said he would like to call on the government to ensure that all those students continue with their studies as soon as possible by providing them with the necessary support that they need.

Mahlatsi said they would also like to call on the criminal justice cluster to ensure that there is a successful prosecution of these criminals.

"Once the criminals are finished with their terms they call on the government to ban them from the borders of South Africa for the rest of their lives because we do not need criminals like those in our country" Mahlatsi added.
