Wisbech man jailed for modern slavery offences ordered to pay back ill-gotten gains
A man who took control of a vulnerable foreign national’s passport and bank details before making him work 12-hour shifts for little or no pay has been ordered to pay back more than £10,000 to his victim.
Michail Charitonov, of Cannon Street in Wisbech, forced the man to sleep on a camper van mattress and use a curtain for a blanket.
The 37-year-old also took control of the victim’s bank card and bank account. Over 10 months the victim was exploited and around £10,000 was paid into his account, but he was only ever allowed about £200 of this.
