TRAFFICKING LAWSUIT
Refugee living in Lexington says in federal lawsuit she was held in servitude by other refugee

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 19, 2014 1:04 PM EDT
LEXINGTON, Ky.


A Congolese refugee living in Lexington says in a federal lawsuit that she was held in servitude by another Congolese refugee.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Claudine Chigangu claims that she and Sifa Ndusha came to the United States in 2011. Chigangu says in the lawsuit that she worked for Ndusha, typically spending 18 hours a day cooking, cleaning and caring for Ndusha's children.

The lawsuit says Chigangu could not leave because Ndusha had control of her money and immigration documents. Chigangu was finally able to escape in 2013 after calling the national human-trafficking hotline.

Ndusha also is charged in Fayette District County with the fraudulent use of a credit card that Chigangu's attorney says belonged to his client.

Ndusha told the Herald-Leader the allegations in both cases are untrue.
