Turkish Nationals, Allegedly Involved in Human Trafficking, Arrested off Othoni

November 26, 2019

CORFU – Three Turkish nationals aged 69, 42 and 37 were arrested at a search on the US-flagged yacht “ANGELO BIAN” while sailing in the sea region of Othoni.

The Turkish nationals are accused of illegally transferring migrants and refugees from Turkey to Italy.

The vessel was driven, with the assistance of two Coast Guard patrol boats, to the port of Corfu, where, following a thorough investigation, it was found that the arrested and the vessel were involved in the illegal transport of 43 third-country nationals to Lecce, Italy, while a European arrest warrant was pending against them.

The boat was confiscated and Corfu port authorities have launched an investigation.
