Girl, 17, brought to Sydney as 'sex slave'

Frightening allegations have emerged about how a teenage girl from Guinea was lured to Australia under the guise of work, before being held captive and raped by a string of men in Sydney.

This comes as reports of human trafficking have escalated in the past year, with concerns heightened about how these hideous crimes can occur.

The 17-year-old Guinea national turned up at the Asylum Seeker Centre in Newtown on April 27, telling staff she had escaped from a unit believed to be in the Newtown area where she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by multiple men for several weeks.

The girl also told staff she was driven to the Centre by a woman- believed to be called ‘Nicole’- who picked her up after she escaped from the house. The exact location of the unit remains unknown.
