Police Arrest Man for Transporting Undocumented Filipino in Northern Greece

On Sunday, a police immigration unit in northern Greece arrested an Albanian national for attempting to traffic Filipino migrants down the Egnatia highway.

The 27-year-old man, suspected of being a member of a migrant trafficking ring, was driving a lorry in which police found 16 undocumented Filipino.

According to the investigation, the lorry belongs to a Bulgarian national. The migrants boarded it in Evros, a Greek prefecture bordering Turkey and Bulgaria.

The filipino were planning to travel from Greece to other European countries, and appear to have paid 2,500 euros.

The man will appear before a prosecutor this week. Authorities are expected to start deportation procedures for the migrants shortly.
