Iran prevents another human trafficking attempt on border with Turkey
Baku, Azerbaijan, June 6
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Iran's Customs Administration said June 6 that it had revealed and neutralized another human trafficking attempt at its Bazargan checkpoint on the border with Turkey.
Customs officers, while scanning a consignment in a long vehicle with an X-ray device, discovered that two people were hidden inside the consignment, the Customs Administration said.
The consignment was going to be delivered to Turkey.
This is the fifth case since early 2016 that Iran's customs officers reveal human trafficking in consignments.
A part of activities of Iran's Customs Administration concern the fight against human trafficking upon a recommendation of the World Customs Organization.
For a number of neighboring countries, Iran is a transit route to Europe.
