  • [01] Two Turkish migrant traffickers, illegal immigrants arrested on Kos (Recasts)

    17/08/2002 14:07:18

    A court on the Dodecanese island of Kos on Saturday sentenced a Turkish migrant trafficker to 69 months in jail, which can be bought off for 6 euros per day, and imposed on him a total fine of 17,500 euros.

    Ibrahim Alil Dorman was arrested on Saturday morning for transporting 29 illegal immigrants.

    In another incident, patrol boats on Kos on Saturday intercepted a Turkish trawler before it managed to slip back into Turkish territorial waters and arrested Turkish national Isa Keser, 34. There were no other people on board the trawler other than the migrant trafficker who lacked travel documents.

    On arrest, Keser admitted that he had earlier disembarked on the coast of Psalidi, in Kos, 17 African illegal immigrants.

    Harbour police tracked down 14 illegal immigrants (8 Sudanese, 3 Ethiopians, 2 Somalis and 1 Egyptian) and are continuing their search to locate any other possible illegal immigrants.

    The arrested will appear before the Kos public prosecutor, while the vessel has been seized.
