Bodedern man banned under trafficking risk order

North Wales Police

For the first time in North Wales, a man has been put under a Slavery and Trafficking Risk Order.

Alun Williams from Bodedern was banned from approaching sex workers for five years after police closed down a static caravan linked with prostitution and human trafficking.

Caernarfon magistrates heard the property at Manaw Farm was allegedly being used as a brothel.

When detectives raided the caravan earlier this month, they found two women from Thailand, who admitted using it for sex work. One of the women claimed she paid £200 rent a week to Williams.

Under the order, Williams must not advertise or encourage anyone to advertise sex services on his behalf.

He must also tell police about any changes in address, mobile phone register details and bank accounts and cannot carry more than £200 in cash without a reasonable excuse. He must also not use any internet device that does not record its browsing history.

The case against a second person, Thumma Peacock (58), also of Manaw Farm, was adjourned for a fortnight as she did not attend court.

After the hearing on Thursday, detectives said their investigations into three people arrested in the raid was continuing.

Detective Sergeant Andrew Davies said he welcomed the order against Williams: ”It is a first for North Wales Police, and underlines our commitment to making our force area the safest place to live in the United Kingdom.”

”This order seeks to reassure the public that we will continue to take action against those who engage in this type of criminal activity, and in doing so disrupt the lives of others within the community.”

The order was made under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
