There are increasing cases of immigrants trying to cross the border between Albania and Montenegro
The police of Shkodra and that of Lezha today prevented the trafficking of two groups of immigrants, who were trying to cross illegally to the countries of the European Union, using the border of Albania with Montenegro.
During the checks on the "Milot-Lezhë" road axis, the police stopped two vehicles with 12 immigrants, who were being transported against a payment of 500 euros per person, with the aim of crossing the border near the Hani Hotit-Bozhaj border crossing. The police announced that the 12 accompanied immigrants were from third countries, but did not specify the country they came from. The police of Lezha accompanied the group of immigrants, while the drivers of the two vehicles, in which the immigrants were being transported, were arrested.
On Saturday, near the border crossing point with Montenegro, in Malësi Madhe, the police arrested two more people, who were transporting three immigrants from India with their "Volkswagen" vehicle, in an attempt to illegally cross the border with destination EU countries. The police said that they seized, as material evidence, the vehicle of two traffickers along with 150 euros, which are suspected to have benefited from the transportation of immigrants.
A day ago, in the village of Bregas in Maliqi, the police found 23 immigrants in an abandoned apartment, who were trying to leave for the countries of the European Union. The immigrants were being held hostage by two local traffickers, who demanded the sum of 10,000 euros from them in order to set them free to continue on their way to the border with Montenegro.
As the summer season passes, there is an increase in groups of immigrants who try to emigrate to the countries of the European Union, using the border of Albania with Montenegro. They enter the territory of Albania through the southern border and then head to the Montenegrin border, sometimes traveling in random vehicles, against payment to local trafficking groups, and sometimes on foot, to avoid police patrols. local. For years, this has been the main route for immigrants through Albanian territory, whose destination is illegal immigration to European Union countries./VOA/
