Migrants: COISP says traffickers doubled price of journey

After Italian laws expanded chances of protection

21 September, 17:40

    (ANSAmed) - ROME, SEPT 21 - Domenico Pianese, secretary general of Italian police union COISP, said human trafficking organisations in recent months have "increased their business by doubling even the price of the journey to Italy, above all in consideration of the new laws introduced by the previous government, which expanded the possibility of having special protection".

    Pianese's comments came as part of the seminar "Security in Metropolitan Areas" held on Tuesday morning in Rome.

    "The recent arrests in Reggio Calabria of 35 Spanish, Russian and Ukrainian traffickers, in fact, give the idea of the international criminal interest that's behind these migratory phenomenons," Pianese said.

    "The fact that undocumented migration is still defined as an 'emergency' does nothing other than demonstrate the inability to systemically face and manage an age-old and global phenomenon that deeply affects the security system of our country, including for the huge human resources of law enforcement involved," he said.(ANSAmed).
