The Myanmar Times - - World -

Span­ish po­lice have smashed a ma­jor ring al­legedly pro­vid­ing Chi­nese na­tion­als liv­ing il­le­gally in the coun­try with fake con­tracts as do­mes­tic staff so they could get res­i­dency per­mits. Po­lice ar­rested 57 peo­ple across the coun­try as part of the op­er­a­tion, in­clud­ing a Chi­nese cou­ple sus­pected of run­ning the ring, po­lice said. The au­thor­i­ties sus­pect Chi­nese na­tion­als liv­ing il­le­gally in Barcelona paid the ring around 8000 eu­ros (US$9000) for fake do­mes­tic work con­tracts with em­ploy­ers in the hol­i­day is­land of Lan­zarote, al­low­ing them to ob­tain res­i­dency per­mits.
