Police after head of people-smuggling ring

The police are after the head of a ring that smuggled at least 13 groups of people from Serbia to Hungary and helped them to reach Austria in 2021, investigators told MTI in a statement on Thursday.

The Iraqi national managed the operations of a 16-member gang from abroad, the statement said.

The illegal migrants they smuggled into Hungary paid 500 euros each for a trip from Serbia to Austria. According to the police’s findings, the organisers earned profits of over 13 million forints (EUR 33,600) from some 150 migrants.
