Hindujas Not Imprisoned, Human Trafficking Charges Dismissed: Spokesperson

New Delhi: Four members of the Hindujas, the wealthiest family in Britain, on Sunday declared they had never been imprisoned, found guilty, sentenced, or otherwise detained. Prakash Hinduja, 78, and his spouse Kamal Hinduja, 75, along with their son Ajay, 56, and his spouse Namrata, 50, were charged with “usury” for allegedly exploiting their susceptible immigrant employees by giving them a meagre salary.

A Hindujas representative claimed in the statement that the family members have not been put in jail and that the accusations of human trafficking against them have been dropped, according to reports.

“The four Swiss-national members of the Hinduja Family, Kamal and Prakash Hinduja, Namrata and Ajay Hinduja, have not been subjected to any imprisonment, conviction, sentence or detention,” the spokesperson said in the statement.

“Per Swiss law procedures, the lower court’s judgment is rendered ineffective and inoperative as the presumption of innocence is paramount until and unless a final judgment by the highest adjudicating authority is enforced. The most serious of the charges, human trafficking, against them were completely dismissed by the court yesterday,” the statement added.

“It may be noted that the case has no complainants left anymore and they had declared in the court that they were led into signing statements that they didn’t even understand. They had neither intended to nor initiated such proceedings. All of them further testified that the four Hinduja family members treated them with ‘respect, dignity and like family’. The four family members have full faith in the Swiss judicial process and remain confident that the truth will prevail.”
