Dismantles two criminal organizations dedicated to human trafficking between Morocco and the Canary Islands

The leaders of the organizations are allegedly responsible for the arrival on the coasts of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura of six boats with 204 Moroccan migrants.


The National Police has dismantled two interconnected criminal organizations dedicated to human trafficking between Morocco and the Canary Islands. The leaders of the organizations are allegedly responsible for the arrival of 204 Moroccan migrants in six boats to the coasts of Lanzarote (5) and Fuerteventura (1). The criminal network charged each migrant an average of 3,000 euros so it is estimated a benefit for the organization of about 612,000 euros. The eight arrests have been carried out in the Canarian town of the provinces of Las Palmas (4), Murcia (2), Cádiz (1) and Vizcaya (1), all of them for crimes against the rights of foreign citizens, membership of a criminal organization and falsification of documents. Three of those arrested remain in pre-trial detention.

 

After several investigations and proceedings carried out by the National Police, it has been possible to clarify the existence of two criminal organizations dedicated to the smuggling of Moroccan migrants, perfectly structured and connected to each other that operated from the Moroccan coast to the Canary Islands.

204 immigrants transferred

The investigations of the agents allowed to determine both the modus operandi of the organizations and the roles played by their members, who were the leaders, the routes used, departure points and amounts that were charged to the migrants for taking them by boat to Spain. In this way, it was possible to find out that the leaders of the organizations were responsible for the arrival of six boats to the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, to which they had transferred 204 Moroccan immigrants.

Profits of more than 600,000 euros

The investigators were also able to find out that the criminal network charged each migrant an average of 3,000 euros, although at first they requested the payment of 4,000 euros and if they did not have enough migrants for the boat to be at full capacity, they lowered the price to 2,500 euros. With the number of boats and migrants transferred known to the agents, a benefit for the organization of more than 600,000 euros has been estimated.

Once the agents gathered all the evidence, to dismantle the organizations a device was designed in several provinces in which almost 100 Police officers participated, making three entries and searches in the homes of the leaders of the organizations, specifically in Sotogrande (Cádiz), Lorquí (Murcia) and Lanzarote (Las Palmas), during which numerous information storage devices were intervened as well as documentation related to transactions. economic to pay for the trip in the boats.
The eight arrested during the investigation were placed at the disposal of the judicial authority as alleged perpetrators of crimes against the rights of foreign citizens, membership of a criminal organization and falsification of documents.
