The trio, a 34-year-old Lithuanian national living in Lambeth, a 32-year-old Israeli national living in Finchley and a 39-year-old Latvian national living in Kent, were detained by NCA officers in a series of raids this morning.

They are now being questioned on suspicion of attempting to facilitate illegal immigration.

The arrests follow the interception of the fishing boat Svanic off the coast of East Anglia on 17 November last year, as part of a joint operation involving the NCA, Immigration Enforcement and Border Force.

The boat had sailed from the Ostend area of Belgium and was carrying 69 Albanian passengers, who were offloaded in Harwich to be dealt with by the immigration authorities.

The three crew members, a Latvian national and two Ukrainian nationals, were arrested on suspicion of facilitating illegal immigration and were subsequently charged.

NCA Regional Head of Investigation Jacque Beer said: Those arrested today are suspected of having played a key role in the events which led up to the interception of the Svanic in November last year: This was a serious attempt to breach the UK’s border controls, and our investigation into that incident continues: But today’s activity once again demonstrates our determination to disrupt and dismantle people smuggling networks wherever they are operating. It is a key priority for the NCA.”

(KENT, U.K) Canterbury Crown Court Report: A Lithuanian lorry driver has been jailed for nine years after attempting to smuggle 24 kilos of cocaine into the UK #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.22: The National Crime Agency launched an investigation after Robertas Trimailovas, aged 46, of Alytus, was stopped at Dover’s Eastern Docks on 5 April this year:

KENT: ‘Lorry driver hid cocaine worth £1m in cab: Border Force officers searched the cab section of the Lithuanian-registered lorry and found the cocaine hidden in three separate spaces in the lining surrounding the driver’s bunk bed’

Robertas TRIMAILOVAS

The drugs would have been worth around £1m if sold on the streets of the UK.

Trimailovas was interviewed by NCA officers and subsequently charged with importing a class A drug. He pleaded guilty at Canterbury Crown Court on 10 May, and was sentenced to nine years at the same court today (14 May).

NCA Dover Branch Commander Martin Grace said: “Drug runners like Trimailovas should be in no doubt about our determination to catch them and bring them to justice.

“Class A drugs bring violence and exploitation to our communities, and working with partners like Border Force we are committed to disrupting the organised crime groups involved.”

` Lithuania President Dalia Gyrbauskaite Wins Second Term in Office ‘

#AceWorldNews – LITHUANIA – May 26 – Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite won a second term in run-off elections on Sunday. Grybauskaite, 58, a former European Budget Commissioner and former minister of finance, attracted 57.9 percent of the votes in the nation of 3 million, Reuters reported.

The electoral commission said Zigmantas Balcytis, a social democrat supported by Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius, received 40.1 percent.

The Lithuanian president appoints government ministers, judges, the head of the central bank and the Lithuanian delegate to the European Commission.

The head of state, however, needs the approval of parliament or the prime minister for most appointments.
