Bradford couple appear in court accused of enslaving man they illegally brought into country

A COUPLE, who are accused of enslaved a man they illegally brought into the country, will be tried before a judge and jury at the crown court.
Adrian Bostan, 37, and his partner Mioara Toma, 34, both of Redmire Street, Thornbury, Bradford, pleaded not guilty to two charges when they appeared at Bradford and KeighleyMagistrates' Court yesterday.
They were told by Deputy District Judge Rod Ross the charges were too serious to be dealt with at the magistrates court and the case was being sent to the crown court in Bradford.
Red-haired Toma, and Bostan, who was clean shaven with short greying black hair, had the eight-minute proceedings translated to them by a Romanian interpreter.
Toma, who was wearing a salmon pink patterned top, pale blue jeans and light brown boots, and Bostan, dressed in a grey T-shirt, grey tracksuit trousers, grey hooded jacket and black casual shoes, spoke to confirm their names, addresses and dates of birth, and to plead not guilty to the two charges.
It is alleged that, between October 21, 2014 and May 4, 2015, at Bradford, they intentionally arranged or facilitated the arrival in, or entry into, the UK of Marius Florea, believing that another person was likely to exploit him after his arrival or entry, contrary to the Asylum and Immigration Act 2004.
