Africa Employment Agency Is Sued By Ngono For Trafficking, US Insists on Protective Order

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 25 – Andre Ngono sued the Africa Employment Agency for, among other things, "trafficking in persons as related to labor trafficking."     

      On June 23, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  The lawyer for the defense directed Judge Netburn to a criminal case he said is related, involving the plaintiff engaging in identity theft.

On the basis, he argued for an enhanced protective order, not only about destruction or return of information, but how the information can be used.

Now on June 25, the US Attorney's Office in the criminal case US v. Ngono, 16-cr-357 (Crotty) has opposed the motion to modify the protective order, saying that Ngono "used the Victim's identity to apply for and receive immigration benefits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals ('DACA')." Ngono was sentenced to four years on May 5, 2017.  The US Attorney's Office says Ngono "has civil discovery tools at his disposal." Watch this site.

The civil case is Ngono v. Owono et al., 21-cv-95 (Gardephe / Netburn)
