Man in Custody, Suspected of Human Trafficking

By Iceland Review

The Suðurnes police have a Serbian citizen in custody, suspected of human trafficking, RÚV reports. The man arrived in the country last weekend, along with a teenager who he claimed was his son. That claim turned out to be false, but the two may be related.

Whether they are indeed related has not been confirmed, which is why the man was taken into custody while the case is being investigated. The man was questioned yesterday, and police await documents from his home country, which could either confirm or refute his account. Meanwhile, the boy is in the care of social services.

Suðurnes police are in charge of the investigation. They confirm the case is being investigated, but refuse to comment further.
