According to the police, the criminal group started its illicit activities last June and estimate that on at least 32 occasions that it organized passages of refugees to Greece, more than 3,000 illegal immigrants and refugees passed through Greece.

The circuit used closed groups and applications on the internet to share information about where the boats would leave and arrive, providing information and even details about the Moria camp.
