Global Horizons Indicted for Human Trafficking: Largest Case in US History
by Pratap Chatterjee, Special to CorpWatch, September 15th, 2010

Mordechai Orian, president of Global Horizons, a Los Angeles-based labor
recruiter, was indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice for "engaging in a
conspiracy to commit forced labor and document servitude" of some 400 Thai
citizens who were brought to work on farms in the U.S.

Federal prosecutors today dropped the forced-labor and human trafficking case against the owner of a labor contracting company accused of victimizing hundreds of Thai farm workers.
U.S. District Judge Susan Oki Mollway signed the order dismissing the case against Mordechai Orian, owner of Global Horizons Inc., and four co-defendants after federal prosecutors said they are unable to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
Three other defendants who have already pleaded guilty will get the opportunity to withdraw their pleas.
The request for the dismissal was signed by U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division attorney Daniel H. Weiss.
The dismissal comes 11 months after the government dropped a similar case against brothers Alec and Mike Sou of Aloun Farms in the middle of trial.
The Global Horizons case had been scheduled for trial next month.
