Human Trafficking Scheme from Bulgaria Busted in Greece
Police in Greece have cracked a network for human trafficking from Bulgaria, in which Bulgarians were forced to beg.
The undisclosed number of Bulgarians were held in an apartment in the central Greek city of Larissa, informed Greek News In, as quoted by the Bulgarian National Radio.
3 Bulgarian citizens - a man and two women - have been detained as organizers of the human trafficking network.
The Bulgarians were among the country's poor, and were lured with promises for work in Greece.
After that, they were forcefully held, were made to beg in various European countries, and were severely beaten at each attempt to escape.
Greek police discovered the network, after a 58-year-old male Bulgarian was hospitalized after being abandoned outside the city following such a beating.
The man, who has managed to file a claim, is in stable condition and will undergo surgery in Larissa.
