A large-scale operation involving law enforcement and judicial authorities from Belgium, France and Germany and coordinated by Europol and Eurojust has led to the dismantling of one of the most active networks involved in smuggling migrants through the English Channel in small boats. 

The investigation focused on an Iraqi-Kurdish network suspected of smuggling irregular migrants from the Middle East and East Africa, targeting France and then the United Kingdom.

Traffickers used low-quality boats to transport migrants. 

This action resulted in the arrest of more than 15 individuals under the orders of Belgian and French justice after a joint investigation of a year and a half./ CNA
