Major Albanian-Czech people smuggling network busted

PRESS RELEASE

Law enforcement authorities from Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany and the United Kingdom, supported by Europol, took action early today against a Europe-wide organized crime group composed primarily of Czech and Albanian nationals.

Members of the group are suspected of money laundering and smuggling mainly Albanian nationals into the European Union in breach of immigration law. Eight members have been arrested.

The group, operating since late 2013, transported irregular migrants to the United Kingdom via two routes: either from Turkey or Greece to Belgium and then on to the United Kingdom in vehicles driven by Czech and Slovak drivers, or from Bulgaria or Serbia to the Czech Republic, and then via Germany to the United Kingdom via ferry or train. Over 100 irregular migrants were brought into the European Union over this period.
