The men are suspected to have conspired to move undocumented immigrants out of Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia and into Western Europe in the second half of 2019. The men sometimes transported the immigrants themselves, and other times gave the task to Hungarian drivers.
Hungarian detectives closely co-operated this year with Slovenian and Croatian authorities on detaining several human traffickers who were members of a “hierarchical human trafficking organisation comprising several people” and run by suspect Milán K.
A co-ordinated operation was executed in Sopron and Mezőfalva early this week where Milán K., 31, Franciska R., 21, and Norbert N., 35, were arrested.
Police said more perpetrators are expected to be captured.
