The Religion of Peace has struck again!
It’s now being reported that a Muslim couple from the great state of Texas is being accused of forcing an African girl to work as a domestic slave for a whopping 16 years. All while they would refer to her as a “whore” and “a little nothing.”
The Department of Justice announced that Mohamed Toure and Denise Cros-Toure who are both 57 years old and reside in Southlake, were also indicted by a jury on charges of illegal alien harboring for financial gain and conspiracies to commit forced labor and alien harboring.
The Muslim couple was charged back in August of arranging for the girl, who doesn’t speak of a word of English, to travel alone from her village in the Republic of Guinea to their home in January of 2000.
Toure who is the son of Guinea’s first president and his wife then forced the girl to work as the family’s domestic slave. Her duties included cooking, cleaning, and yard work when she wasn’t being called names and belittled as the Quoran states.
Here is more via The Department of Justice:
“Defendants Mohamed Toure, 57, and Denise Cros-Toure, 57, of Ft. Worth, Texas, were charged today in a five-count indictment with forced labor, alien harboring for financial gain, and conspiracies to commit forced labor and alien harboring, announced Acting Assistant Attorney General John Gore of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas, and Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey McGallicher of the Department of State, Diplomatic Security Services’ Houston Field Office. Defendant Toure was also charged with making false statements to federal agents. The defendants were arrested on April 26, 2018, after being charged by criminal complaint.
According to the indictment, in January 2000, the defendants arranged for the victim, then a minor child, to travel alone from her village in Guinea, West Africa, to Southlake, Texas, to work for them in their home. For more than 16 years, the Toures allegedly forced her to work long hours – demanding she handle childcare, cook, clean, and perform yardwork. Although the victim was close in age to their five biological children, the couple denied her access to schooling, medical care, and other opportunities they afforded their own children, and on several occasions Denise Cros-Toure slapped or struck her as punishment. Until neighbors helped the victim escape in August 2016, the defendants allegedly denied her any pay, isolated her from her family and threatened serious harm if she refused to work.
As part of their scheme to compel the victim’s labor, the defendants confiscated her official documents and caused her to remain unlawfully in the United States after her tourist visa expired in March 2000 and threatened to send her back to Guinea if her work was unsatisfactory.
An indictment is merely an accusation, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. If convicted of forced labor, the defendants face a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and mandatory restitution. If convicted of alien harboring, the defendants face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
The case is being investigated by Diplomatic Security Services’ Houston Field Office. It is being prosecuted by Trial Attorneys Rebekah Bailey and William Nolan of the Civil Rights Division’s Criminal Section and Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit and Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Wolfe for the Northern District of Texas.”
According to prosecutors the girl whose travel documents point to the fact that she was as young as 5 or as old as 13 at the time when she was brought to the U.S. was also denied access to schooling, medical care, and other opportunities and services that the couple provided to their own five biological children. The Toures also denied paying the girl for her work and occasionally physically and mentally abused her as they forced her to sleep on the bathroom floor for years.
The New York Post reported that according to the couple’s attorney, Scott Palmer, the allegations against his clients are “salacious allegations, fabrications, and lies.”
“We look forward to amassing a mountain of evidence to refute the government’s portrayal of our clients and look forward to revealing the motivation of this woman to life, betray and attempt to destroy the family that took her in at the request of her father for a better life in the United States,” Palmer said in a statement to the newspaper.
The attorney added that the Toures were granted asylum in the United States in 2000 and they treated the girl as one of their own children. “They even gave her money for Christmas gifts and letting her stay in touch with her relatives back home.”
According to the criminal complaint, it’s unclear how the couple supported themselves. They have no known employment other than “significant overseas deposits” since arriving in the states.
If convicted they face a prison term up to 20 years.
