The Jewish Chronicle - - News - BY AN­SHEL PF­EF­FER

A 58-YEAR-OLD Is­raeli liv­ing in Manch­ester was ar­rested on Mon­day at Ben Gu­rion air­port on sus­pi­cion of traf­fick­ing hu­mans to Bri­tain.

Is­rael Po­lice’s Na­tional Unit for In­ter­na­tional Crimes and In­ves­ti­ga­tions said that Meir Mizrahi, orig­i­nally of Beit Da­gan, had been re­cruit­ing Is­raeli women through news­pa­per ad­ver­tise­ments, and bring­ing them to work in a Manch­ester brothel — said to be based at a house Mizrahi owned in the city. His part­ner in the brothel, an­other Is­raeli, is sus­pected by the po­lice to have been in­volved in the past in hu­man traf­fick­ing, and is be­lieved to be at large in Bri­tain. Is­raeli po­lice have asked Greater Manch­ester Po­lice to help find him.

A third sus­pect, ac­cord­ing to Is­raeli news­pa­pers, is a cab driver from Lod who was also ar­rested by po­lice af­ter al­legedly driv­ing Mizrahi around the coun­try free of charge dur­ing his visit last year.
