Lucy Taylor obtained a Slavery and Trafficking Risk Order against Salvatore Lopresti. The order is understood to be the first obtained in the region. Mr Lopresti, known as the Ice-Cream King of Bristol, was given the order by DJ Matthews at a hearing on 8 May 2019.
A trial of modern slavery charges that was due to take place on 13 May 2019 has been vacated, as Mr Lopresti is not fit to stand trial due to dementia. The Slavery and Trafficking Risk Order will enable him to be monitored to ensure no slavery or trafficking offences are committed.
