Report Outlines 'Human Trafficking' by 'Terrorist' Groups

ANKARA, April 29 (A.A) - Most of the recent illegal human trafficking

incidents, were organized by the terrorist organizations to train their

members abroad or to provide finance sources for terrorist activities, it

was reported on Thursday.

According to a report issued by the Struggle Against Smuggling and

Organized Crimes Department of Directorate General of Security, those who

want to live in Europe due to economic, political, and social reasons, pay

8-10 thousand German Mark per person to human traffickers.

Terrorist organizations use routes of Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria,

Greece, Italy, Russia, Albania and other member countries to the

Commonwealth of Independent States.

The report also underlined that especially those coming from Eastern and

Southeastern Anatolia region, apply to the human traffickers whose bases

are generally in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Adana, Kocaeli, Aksaray, and

Gaziantep.

Human traffickers take immigrants out of Turkey mostly from Istanbul,

Edirne, Izmir, Antalya, Icel, Mugla, and Kirklareli provinces.
