Each parent has their own methods and ideas when raising children, but this one wins the year’s worst parenting award. A BBC article tells the story of Romanian Bogdan and Marius Nejloveanu, a father and son who ran a family business of trafficking women into the UK. The women were promised homes and jobs, but upon arrival were forced into prostitution in Manchester.
Rachel Smith, the prosecutor for the case, is quoted saying: “you may conclude that the son learnt this trade from his father and that this was a family business.”
How does this happen? A letter from father to son might have looked something like this:
I love you, and want to provide you with a significant income stream that will benefit you and our extended family. As your father, I want to train you to take over the family business. You are finally old enough to learn this valuable trade. By working with me, you won’t have to be tied down to some regular job that pays next to nothing. This business is international in nature, allowing you to be free from the rules of both Romania and the UK.
Since you were a child, I have taught you that women are inferior to men. But they are useful to us. Why? Because sex sells. Hookers make bank. But not for themselves…for us.
Here’s how we operate. Look for vulnerable women aged 19 to 27. You know how to spot them…there really isn’t very much opportunity for a lot of them in Romania, and this is to our advantage. Befriend them, charm them. Stay in shape and dress well – this will make your job easier. Offer them jobs in the UK, whatever you feel they are interested in: nannying, waitressing, modelling, whatever. Tell them housing is covered too. This will get them to start dreaming about their new little home in England and how they want to decorate it. They will feel like they won the lottery.
Once you have wooed them, I will teach you how to get them to the UK. And you have already seen what we do once they arrive: rape them into submission and train them for the streets. Manipulations, threats, and physical force are all good tactics at this point. Once they start working you will be rolling in cash. There is a lot of demand out there.
I know you will do well, my son. I am excited about taking you on as my business partner. You won’t be disappointed.
Fortunately, Bogdan and Marius Nejloveanu were arrested and are facing 33 charges, which they have denied. The son faces six counts of rape, nine counts of trafficking, assault, controlling prostitution for gain, causing sexual activity without consent, and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. All of these acts took place between 2006 and 2010. The trial is expected to last six weeks.
Fathers, please train your sons to respect and value women.
