Tricked Into Becoming Sex Slave

A former school teacher has been accused of keeping a glamorous Russian doctor as his sex slave after tricking her into coming to Britain.
Her family say divorcee John Collins, 53, held penniless Siberian medic Anastasia Kiriakova prisoner in his home for a year, forcing her to cook and clean for him.
Collins would regularly wake Anastasia, 29, in the middle of the night and demand oral sex, she told her family.
Since fleeing from his home in Bromley, Kent, she has received a barrage of threatening emails from him and he has posted derogatory messages about her on internet websites.
But Collins claims it was Anastasia who pestered him for sex and that she conned him out of £10,000.
Anastasia placed a lonely hearts advert in a London magazine asking for help to come to Britain to continue her studies and increase her meager Russian wages of £4 a week.
Collins, who claimed to be 10 years younger than he is, sent a picture of himself as a younger man and urged Anastasia to be his guest.
She says she arrived to find she was expected to cook, clean and give sex on demand to Collins.
She told her family: "I was like a slave. I wasn't allowed to go out except when he gave his permission."
Despite insisting he wanted a platonic relationship, it is claimed Collins was soon harassing her for sex.
Furious that she walked out on him, Collins is now waging a campaign against Anastasia.
In one email he threatened: "I am the leech that is going to stick on to you. I am going to suck your blood.
"The reason is that you have decided to ignore me. I am nobody's fool and not yours."
In another, he wrote: "If this had been war...I would have shot you out of hand, without compunction and without qualms."
Collins claimed Anastasia "was a sex machine". He said: "She wanted it all the time. She was really dirty. She started barging into my bedroom. She was the most hungry woman I had ever met. It's nonsense for her to say I made her cook and clean.
"She took my money and took herself off to Paris. She went ballistic when I locked her out of my house when she got back. She set about me."
Collins has complained to Russian police about Anastasia - but a spokesman said they rejected the complaint "from this randy pensioner who misled her over his age and is now sending a steady stream of abusive and threatening emails to her family". British authorities have also taken her side, allowing her to re-enter the UK to complete a medical course.
Anastasia's father Alexei, 53, said: "I think he's mad. First he invents this terrible story about my daughter. Then he tries to make other people believe in this nonsense. He has tormented us to death with his emails."
