THESSALONIKI: Syrian national arrested for human trafficking


An 18 year old Syrian national was arrested yesterday by Greek police and charged for human trafficking.

According to police, when the officers signaled the truck to stop on the Old National Road Thessaloniki - Kavala, the suspect developed speed and attempted to escape.

Police eventually caught up with the suspect and arrested him.
