Victoria police seek victims of B.C. group charged with human trafficking in Saskatchewan

Victoria police are appealing to potential victims of an alleged human trafficking ring to come forward.

The appeal comes several weeks after four Vancouver Island residents were arrested in Swift Current, Sask., on suspicion of human trafficking.

Swift Current RCMP says it stopped the group, which was speeding along Highway 1 in a three-vehicle convoy, on Jan. 28.

Police became suspicious when they discovered two young female passengers with no ID who were being transported in separate vehicles with tinted windows.

Shawn Alexander Kelly, a 23-year-old Victoria man, Shermineh Sheri Ziaee, a 36-year-old Langford woman, and her two sons Seyed Kourosh Miralinaghi, 19, and Seyed Kamran Miralinaghi, both 19-year-old Victoria residents, are now facing a variety of human trafficking-related charges.
