36 arrests in coordinated human trafficking bust

June 7, 2024 — A major crackdown on human trafficking has led to the arrest of 36 individuals and the detention of six others in a coordinated operation across four countries.

The Specialized Prosecution Structure Against Organized Crime and Corruption (SPAK), responsible for the operation, has brought to light a criminal group that was trafficking people across international borders using false passports.

The operation, which spanned across Spain, Italy, Kosovo, and the United States, involved 51 raids and resulted in the arrest of 10 individuals outside of Albania.

One member of the criminal group remains at large. The group, which was active in trafficking people from Albania to these countries, was caught using both land and air routes.
