Egyp­tian, 2 Greeks ar­rested

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice on Satur­day de­tained three sus­pected peo­ple smug­glers in two sep­a­rate in­ci­dents. In the first case, a 24-year-old Egyp­tian na­tional was caught driv­ing a truck with Ger­man li­cense plates in which 25 Syr­ian mi­grants had been hid­den. The 24-year-old was stopped on a coun­try road in the north­ern pre­fec­ture of Rodopi and was to ap­pear be­fore a lo­cal pros­e­cu­tor. The sec­ond case in­volved two Greeks, both aged 52, who were ar­rested in the area of Polykas­tro, near the north­ern city of Kilkis, as they al­legedly tried to smug­gle four mi­grants – two Syr­i­ans and two Moroc­cans – out of the coun­try. The first of the sus­pected smug­glers had the four mi­grants in his car while his al­leged ac­com­plice was driv­ing a sep­a­rate ve­hi­cle in the role of look­out. They had been head­ing for Greece’s bor­der with the For­mer Yu­goslav Re­pub­lic of Mace­do­nia, ac­cord­ing to po­lice sources.
