The UK police said Saturday the two suspects in a major slavery case are from India and Tanzania and came to Britain in the 1960s.

Police believe two of the three women victims,who were allegedly held against their will for over 30 years,met the male suspect in London “through a shared political ideology and that they lived together at an address that you could effectively call ‘a collective’,” said Commander Steve Rodhouse. The two suspects,a male and a female,both aged 67,have been released on bail.

The disclosure Thursday that a 69-year-old Malaysian,a 57-year-old Irish woman and a 30-year-old Briton were freed after apparently spending three decades in captivity had prompted questions about how it went unnoticed for so long.
