Drivers were hired in Moldova, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, offering them a monthly salary of up to 3,000 euros.

The Austrian police uncovered a network of smugglers who smuggled over 700 illegal migrants into the country. Most of them continued on their way to Germany, Lower Austria police spokesman Johann Baumschlager said on Saturday, November 27.

It is indicated that 15 alleged smugglers who were transporting people from Syria, Lebanon and Egypt were detained within several days.

The smuggling operation was stopped after a convoy of 25 vehicles with 200 to 300 people moved from the Serbian-Hungarian border on 16 November. Her route passed through the territory of Slovakia and the Czech Republic to Lower Austria, where the police stopped 14 vehicles.

Drivers were hired in Moldova, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, offering them a monthly salary of up to 3,000 euros.

Of the hundreds of migrants, about a third have applied for asylum in Austria, Baumschlager said. Those who were detained said that they planned to move to Germany themselves. Another two-thirds, according to Baumschlager, probably went to that country. Since the beginning of the year, more than 330 people have been detained in Austria on suspicion of human smuggling.

On the eve in Poland, law enforcement officers detained three citizens of Ukrainewho are accused of aiding illegal migrants in crossing the border.
