Model kidnapped for sex slave trade
A BRITISH model who was kidnapped by sex slavers has told how she was drugged, handcuffed and stuffed in a suitcase.
Mum Chloe Ayling, 20, was driven to a remote Italian farmhouse and held captive for six days after being abducted by masked men.
Ms Ayling, who was lured to Milan by a bogus fashion shoot, said: “I feared for my life second by second.”
Her alleged kidnapper, Lukasz Pawel Herba, told her he was part of a sinister syndicate called Black Death which sold women as sex slaves.
Ms Ayling, who is believed to have been drugged with ketamine, was warned she would be auctioned to Arabs on the dark web then fed to tigers.
“I’ve been through a terrifying experience,” she said. “I’ve feared for my life, second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour. I’m scared for my life especially because I’ve told you these things and he says there are 10,000 members in Europe.”
Ms Ayling said she was drugged after entering an Italian studio on July 11, adding: “I woke up in a car’s boot.
“My wrists and ankles were handcuffed and there was ad- hesive tape on my mouth. I was inside a bag and was only able to breathe through a small hole.”
The gang drove Ms Ayling two hours to Borgial, near Lemie, on the French border. When she woke, she had been stripped to just a pink chenille body stocking and socks.
“The man said that in the past five years he has made more than £ 11 million,” she said. “The girls are destined for Arab countries. At least three a week are sold and when the person gets bored of her he gives her to other people.
Mr Herba, 30, appeared in an Italian court last week for a pre- trial hearing.
Police allege he demanded $ 440,000 to stop the auction, hosted on pornographic sites.
Police believe he previously lured Ms Ayling to Paris for a photo shoot which didn’t go ahead.
