Swedish People Smugglers In Greece

Published tisdag 1 april 2008 kl 12.54

The number of Swedes sentenced to prison for people smuggling in Greece is at a record high. At the same time, the number of asylum seekers to Greece has increased.

According to Sweden’s ambassador in Athens, 11 swedes were sentenced for smuggling in 2007, compared to three or four previously.

Mårten Grunditz believes the numbers are only the tip of the iceberg and more people are involved in people trafficking who haven’t been caught.

People-smuggling is a big problem in Greece. Tens of thousands of people from Asia, eastern Europe and the Middle East illegally enter the European Union country every year. They often head to Greek islands from the neighbouring Turkish coast on board sailing or fishing boats.
