The indictment deposited with the Bucharest court states the four defendants formed an organised criminal group back in 2021 to commit human trafficking in Romania and other countries including the UK and US.

The indictment names seven alleged victims who were recruited by the brothers through false promises of love and marriage. The trial is expected to take a number of years.
