What a story. And one wonders why Europe is being flooded?
Judge declares illegals actively involved with human smuggling as “victims”.
Belgium journalists involved with human trafficking? Surprised Vera Jourova and Frans Timmermans did not call it an attack on the free press? 😉
– The court also handed down reduced sentences to the illegal migrants, who had helped others illegally cross into Britain.
The illegal migrants were first given up to 40 months’ suspended imprisonment, but the prosecution appealed, asking for five years. The court responded by reducing the sentences even further, to between one year and 20 months imprisonment for the seven migrant defendants.
The court said that the illegal migrants had indeed been involved in human trafficking, but were also victims of trafficking themselves.
They helped other illegal migrants board trucks heading to Britain in return for payment, while they themselves waited to reach the country, too.
This makes them victims? The judge is obviously not fit for his position.
