Swiss Police Smash Chinese Trafficking Ring

by swisscham in General Interest

Swiss police have smashed a syndicate that allegedly used fake documents to smuggle Chinese into the alpine nation. In all, 57 people were arrested out of 349 taken in for questioning during an extensive police operation. The operation, led by the Federal Police Office, brought together officers from nine cantons (Aargau, Basel Country, Bern, Fribourg, Lucerne, Neuchâtel, Vaud, Zug and Zurich) as well as support from Europol and neighbouring countries to crack down on the illegal network. The group is suspected of coordinating the illegal entry and employment of Chinese citizens in restaurants in Switzerland using forged passports and visas which were seized by police.
