“I’m incredibly grateful to the Italian and UK authorities for all they have done to secure my safe release.
“I have just arrived home after four weeks and haven’t had time to collect my thoughts. I am not at liberty to say anything further until I have been debriefed by the UK police.”
According to the police a male name Lukasz Pawel Herba 30, believe to the architect of the whole incident. According to the authorities Lukasz is Polish but lives in Britain and has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping for extortion purposes.
Lukasz claimed to be part of the sex trafficking group called ‘Black Death’, and he has organized such auctions and kidnapping of women, according to Italian authorities.
