MANILA – Police found four Filipino women working for one of the wives of a Saudi Arabian prince who is accused of human trafficking in California.

KTLA-Los Angeles reported that the Filipino women are now with the custody of the Salvation Army.

They were all working for a Meshael Alayban, the sixth wife of a Saudi Arabian prince. They were tasked to look after the couple's three children while vacationing in Orange County.

Alayban is accused of one count of human trafficking after her Kenyan maid accused her of making her work for long hours without breaks and without days off, among others. The Kenyan woman escaped the condo and went to authorities.

Reports added that authorities are still investigating the circumstances of the four Filipino women.
