Man denies forcing nurses to work

DENVER — A man accused of trafficking in forced labor is telling jurors he made sure nurses he recruited and helped get visas knew how much they would make when they got to the United States.

According to the Denver Post, Kizzy Kalu said Monday he did not make money bringing nurses here. He said the only way he could make money is by getting them to work in the program.

Federal prosecutors say Kalu lured nurses to the United States with promises of positions paying up to $72,000, then demanded they give him up to $1,200 a month or lose the work visas that allowed them to work here.
