Possible human trafficking at US Saudi Embassy

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/...n-trafficking/
Quote:
McLEAN, Va. (CBSDC) — A quiet, upscale neighborhood in McLean, Va. is stunned to learn that federal authorities are investigating a home owned by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for possible human trafficking violations.

Two women were rescued from the home, located in the 6000 block of Orris Street, during a raid by local police and federal agents Tuesday afternoon.

It is believed the women are from the Philippines and work at the Saudi Embassy in Washington.

The pair claim to have been mistreated, a State Department officials tells CNN.

The headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency is less than two miles from the home.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigators are handling the case, which is in the beginning stages.

If ICE officials determine a crime has been committed, it is a possible no charges will be filed in the case due to diplomatic immunity
I'm seeing less and less of a reason to kiss the Saudi ass

How does it go from the pair claiming to have been "mistreated" to this being classified as human trafficking?

I don't know, I just posted it from the article for discussion. We had a sex slave thing happen around here a couple of years ago as well, insane that this goes on...and sickening.

I'd also like to add that diplomatic immunity has always grinded my gears ever since Leathal Weapon II
