Georgians convicted of white slavery

An Oslo court Tuesday convicted two men from Georgia of keeping two women as virtual slaves. The women were raped, held captive in an Oslo flat and forced into prostitution.

One of the men, convicted of human trafficking, pimping and kidnapping, was sentenced to 11 years in prison. Prosecutors had sought 13 years.

The other man was sentenced to four years for pimping and kidnapping.

The women, one from Russia and the other from Lithuania, were brought to Norway by the men and forced into prostitution from an Oslo flat. Neither was allowed to keep any of the money that their male customers paid.

Six other men were also convicted in the case, found guilty of rape and organizing prostitution operations against the women's will.

The case ranks as the biggest of its kind in Norwegian history.
