The most disturbing aspect highlighted this morning by Imperia’s attorney, Alberto Lari, is the lack of scruples of these very tax-paying people. But that's not all. The strangers also felt some kind of fear towards them and if it weren't for the wiretapping, it would have been really difficult to get useful investigative material from the interested parties themselves, who have always denied having paid to get to France.
The investigations began about a year ago from an investigative information activity and were carried out, often in synergy with the French authorities, by interception and harassment. Sixteen are the transits noted by the judicial authority, although many others have gone unnoticed. The migrants were all sent to Niceafter short but exhausting journeys, often piled up in vans or even in the trunk of cars.
The director of police border, Martino Santacroce, illustrating the results of the operation, whose blitz took off at dawn today, communicated the results of the results obtained in 2019, with 193 arrests (23 more than in 2018), 62 of which for illegal immigration and 14 executed cross-border. 89 complaints in a state of freedom must also be highlighted (compared to 70 in 2018); while the police officers employed were 13,339. In addition, there are 5,889 patrols, of which 93 are mixed (Italy-France). Also note 287 active readmissions (foreigners in an irregular situation brought back to France, from where they entered Italy), against 201 in 2019.
