Spain and Gibraltar detain 47 migrant smugglers

The Spanish National Police and the law enforcement agencies of Gibraltar conducted a joint operation against a criminal group that transported migrants.

The operation was coordinated with the European Police Agency (Europol). Law enforcement officers detained 47 people. From Spain, about 200 police officers took part in the operation.

The criminal organization charged migrants from Morocco from € 7 thousand to € 8 thousand for their services, which allowed its members to receive more than € 1 million in profit from their activities.

The group was engaged in falsification of documents so that migrants could get visas and get to Gibraltar. From there, illegal immigrants on SUVs were secretly transported to Spain.
