Police have cracked a human trafficking ring based in Thessaloniki.
The activities of the multi-member gang were unraveled when police found a van in which 25 Syrian citizens were found stacked.

The van was blocked by police of the Immigration Bureau on the Egnatia Highway.

Already four traffickers have been arrested, two Albanian and two Bulgarian nationals, while charges are also being formulated against another eight persons , including a Bulgarian woman, considered the "brains" of the operation.

From the first questioning, the immigrants appear to have entered Greece from Turkey and were headed for Athens, It is believed that family members would pay traffickers 2000 euros a head upon their arrival at their destination.
