Palestinian Refugee Brought Before German Court over Alleged Human Trafficking

A Palestinian refugee from Syria aged 40 has been brought before a German court over charges of human trafficking and migrant smuggling onboard inflatable boats bound for Europe.

According to the German daily Bild Zeitung, the man was arrested in the Netherlands after a European arrest warrant was issued against him. He headed for the Netherlands in 2018, following years of involvement in human trafficking. The man is being trialed in Dresden.

In 2014-2015, he allegedly mediated smuggling thousands of migrants from Syria to European destinations via Turkey. Through such journeys, migrant boats are reportedly docked in Italy or Greece for sums of money of up to $6,000 per every single person.

The German prosecution claimed the man is one of the most dangerous human traffickers in Mersin, in Turkey. At the end of 2014, he allegedly smuggled 800 migrants onboard a Moldavia-flagged ship which disembarked in Scissile. He was also responsible for securing stays at Mersin hotels for nearly 2,000 irregular migrants.
