Child Smuggling Ring Thwarted
Posted by: Alan
Alertness and quick thinking by Emirates staff at Dubai Airport have foiled an attempt by people smugglers to traffic children into Europe.
Four Chinese children arrived at Dubai Airport en route to a European country, accompanied by a man and a woman claiming to be their parents.
Emirates airlines employees in the airport transit hall became suspicious about the groups’ identities and contacted police.
Their passports were found to have been forged and DNA tests on the six passengers revealed that the two adults were not the parents of the children.
The children, aged 11, 13, 15 and 16, were not related.
