In a thrilling operation led by the Central Investigation Bureau of Police (CBŚP), the Silesian Border Guard, and the Vistula Border Guard, a notorious international criminal group responsible for smuggling illegal migrants from Asia and Africa into Poland and other European countries has been successfully dismantled. This groundbreaking achievement comes after years of meticulous investigation and surveillance conducted under the watchful eye of the District Prosecutor’s Office in Garwolin.
Uncovering a web of deceit and covert operations, officers from the Radom Division of the Central Investigation Bureau of Police joined forces with their counterparts from the Silesian Border Guard and the Vistula Border Guard to take down this well-organized criminal syndicate. Their nefarious activities involved facilitating the unlawful crossing of the Polish Republic’s borders, flouting the country’s legal regulations.
Startling revelations from the investigation indicate that the gang had been operating discreetly for several years, primarily within Poland but also extending their illicit operations to various European nations. It appears that the illegal migrants, hailing from Asian and African countries, were stealthily smuggled through Poland’s eastern border. The country served as both a final destination and a transit point for those aiming to reach other European nations. Astonishingly, evidence gathered during the investigation revealed that potential migrants had to cough up a staggering average of 5,000 euros for their passage into Poland. The stakes were even higher if their intended target was the coveted land of the United Kingdom, with fees skyrocketing to an eye-watering 10,000 euros!
During the dramatic climax of this operation, law enforcement officers apprehended three individuals—a trio comprising two Indian citizens and one adventurous soul from Tadzhikistan. The sheer magnitude of evidence accumulated against these perpetrators has led to charges being filed against them at the District Prosecutor’s Office in Garwolin. They now face severe penalties, including up to 8 years of imprisonment, for their involvement in this organized criminal enterprise.
This isn’t the first wave of arrests, as the investigation has already yielded a total of five individuals held in custody. Among them are two citizens from Pakistan, two from India, and one from Tadzhikistan. The authorities are determined to bring all involved parties to justice and ensure that this illicit network is fully dismantled, leaving no room for criminal enterprises to exploit vulnerable migrants seeking a better future.
In a swift response to prevent further criminal activities, four of the suspects linked to this organized criminal group have been remanded in custody, while one remains under the watchful eye of the police, subject to strict supervision.
