Mediterranean migrant trafficking a study in cash handoffs, extortion | The Japan Times.

This article reminds us that it is the criminal gangs who are making massive profits from human-trafficking. So what are the law enforcement authorities do to counter the criminals?

  1. Dr Alf wonders what the law enforcement agencies are doing about people trafficking in the Mediterranean and presumably elsewhere and I think the answer is very simple.
    For criminality such as people smuggling and drug smuggling to exist on the scale that it does certain rogue elements within the relevant police forces and those who control the movement of ships must be being paid (probably in cash in brown paper bags or in secret to offshore bank accounts using the dark net),to look the other way.
    Certainly all those who could be involved and their families,relatives,mistresses etc need to be investigated and all their bank accounts and lifestyles looked at by teams of forensic accountants and security risk analysts who should also look at the investigative records of those who should be uncovering malfeasance but who have fallen into temptation and been bought off.
