Multinational police raid clamps down on human smuggling ring

Budapest (MTI) – Greek, British, Swedish, Hungarian and Austrian authorities have clamped down on a human smuggling network in operation since 2013, the European police force Europol reported.

The crime ring is thought to have profited 10 million euros over the years from transporting about 100 migrants daily from Turkey to Austria, travelling through Greece, Macedonia, Serbia and Hungary, according to data from the investigation.

In Wednesday’s raid, coordinated by Europol, 23 arrests were made, 13 in Greece, two in Sweden and seven in Austria. The head of the ring was apprehended in Liverpool in the UK, according to Europol’s report.
