HONOLULU — A federal judge set bail at $1 million for the Israeli CEO of a labor recruiting company accused of exploiting 400 workers from Thailand and forcing them to work on US farms.

Mordechai Orian, head of Los Angeles-based Global Horizons Manpower Inc., was ordered Wednesday to be held in federal custody until he can raise the money.

KITV reports federal prosecutors claim Orian is a flight risk. They had sought to keep him in custody until his trial, and plan to appeal.

Orian, 45, is accused in what the FBI calls the largest human-trafficking case charged in US history.
