Twelve employees of an Ashkelon-based recruitment agency were arrested on Monday morning on suspicion of ripping off Thai agricultural workers and forcing them to work many hours to meet their illegal debts to the agency.

The undercover investigation was jointly managed by the National anti-crime unit, the Lahav 433 Unit, the Income Tax Investigation office in Jerusalem (a part of the Tax Authority) and other agencies.
