TORONTO — Twenty human traffickers have been removed from Canada.

Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Steven Blaney announced Tuesday the "foreign criminals" who operated primarily in the Hamilton, Ont., have been kicked out of the country.

The convicted traffickers were part of the extended Domotor-Kolompar criminal ring, whose victims were usually brought to Canada from Hungary under the pretence of "a better life and work in the Hamilton area," Canada Border Services Agency said in release. "They were forced to work illegally, live in deplorable conditions without adequate food, and were intimidated or attacked repeatedly."
