Nanny feared deportation, human trafficking trial told

A Filipino nanny testified in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Friday that she was afraid of being sent back to the Philippines and that's why she obeyed her employers' harsh rules.

As the CBC's Belle Puri reports, Franco Orr and his wife Nicole Huen are on trial for human trafficking charges arising from allegations they kept Leticia Sarmiento in domestic servitude for nearly two years.
