The District Court in České Budějovice has sentenced six people to two to eight years for attempted drug and human trafficking. The court found on Wednesday that the group had organised the transfer of Czech prostitutes to a brothel in Switzerland in 2009, as well as a delivery of drugs of their own making. A woman who the group did bring to Switzerland was allegedly kept in a locked room by a Swiss man and was repeatedly raped and beaten. A decision in his trial is expected later this week.
