Two arrested for immigrant trafficking

(ANSA) – Catanzaro, June 27 – Two foreigners, Mhahmad Said Mhammad Darwish and Ahmad Samir, were taken into custody and an underage boy was reported to the authorities and assigned to a minors' detention centre for allegedly bringing a vessel carrying 59 Egyptian immigrants to Calabria, where they landed on Wednesday. The investigation on how the 59 immigrants, who reportedly each paid 4,000 euros to be taken to Italy, was carried out by the Catanzaro police force, together with the Italian Financial Police and the Soverato Portal Authorities. The investigators have determined that the immigrants, who were travelling below deck, allegedly left from the port of Alexandria in Egypt for the eight-day journey. All those travelling on the vessel that are not currently under investigation by the police were deported back to Egypt on Wednesday night. The underage travellers have been handed over to the local authorities.
