According to the Department of Work and Pensions’ website, Romanians working ‘in a self-employed capacity’ can claim housing and council tax benefit and child benefits. These are not just a few people making a few bob, this is an international organised crime ring - one of the largest. It is a vile trade and children need to be protected from these predators.”, And this week, 25 international and Romanian NGOs and human rights groups signed a letter calling for the case to be reopened “to make Romania responsible for its specific obligations under the international conventions against organised crime and human trafficking that it is part of.”, The letter, sent to around a dozen organisations including the UN, the Vatican, Parliament and the Council of Europe, is headlined: “Call to action…Organised criminals let off in Romania!

But while British-born poor often can only afford to buy a few copies at a time, Romanian gangsters ‘block buy’ copies for cash at Big Issue distribution depots.
