Greek Police Smash Migrant Smuggling Ring; Sold Migrants Fake Passports to Ease Flights

Greek police have smashed a major migrant smuggling ring operating out of the country, the Euro News website reports today (June 7, 2017).

The organized criminal gang -- said to include six Afghans and a Sudanese -- is accused of helping migrants enter other EU (European Union) countries and Canada illegally.

Migrants trying to leave Greece are believed to have paid up to 16,000 euros for high quality travel and identity documents.

Ioanna Rotziokou, a spokeswoman for the Greek police, said: "The traffickers we've arrested provided irregular migrants with fake or stolen passports to facilitate their transfer by regular flights from airports."
