NCA branch commander Matt Rivers said:“People smugglers are ruthless and exploitative, treating migrants as a commodity which they move from country to country for profit: “Tackling them is a priority for the NCA, and this is bringing operational results in the form of arrests and prosecutions: “The NCA is targeting and disrupting crime groups at every step of the route, in source countries, in transit, near the UK border in France and Belgium, and – as in this case – those operating inside the UK itself.” ………..The NCA has around 50 ongoing investigations into networks or individuals involved in the top tier of organised immigration crime.
This investigation is being supported by Project Invigor – the immigration crime taskforce led by the NCA, but also including Immigration Enforcement, Border Force and the CPS:
