Milan, 30 June (AKI) - Police at Milan's main airport have arrested 22 Sri Lankan nationals on charges of abetting illegal immigration. The arrests followed the discovery by Italian border police of an immigrant smuggling network, based in Italy but with branches in France, Germany Switzerland, England and the Czech republic. The gang organised arrivals of would-be immigrants into Italy, through false documents provided either at Milan's Malpensa airport or at other European airports, from where they were brought into Italy by road.

Those arrested used a travel agency in the Milan province as cover and for every trip charged between 1,000 and 12,000 euros, detaining the immigrants by force until the sum was paid.

During the blitz, police also discovered many false Italian stay permits and detained around 80 illegal immigrants who are due to be expelled.
