Bulgarian Border Police neutralised an organised crime group that had been trafficking women for exploitation in Western Europe, mainly to Marseille in France, the Interior Ministry said on February 12 2016.

Since June 2015, Border Police officers and French colleagues had been actively exchanging operational information about the organiser of the sex-trafficking ring, his accomplices, about trips made across the border and the group’s earnings, the ministry said.

Border Police and two officers from the judicial police in Marseille had carried out a police operation in Bulgaria’s city of Rousse on the Danube, capital city Sofia, Silistra and Montana.

The organiser of the trafficking ring, a 36-year-old, had been held in Rousse on a European arrest warrant, the ministry said.
