International police team targets human trafficking at Prague airport

Police officers from Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal and the Czech Republic are currently performing increased controls at Prague’s Ruzyně airport in an effort to crack down on human trafficking. Since last week, police have mainly been focusing on arrivals from third world countries and looking for forged passports. Further details could not be revealed, a police spokeswoman said on Tuesday. The controls are part of an initiative of the European agency Frontex, an organization seeking to increase cooperation between police officers in Europe. Czech police officers participate in similar projects at airports abroad.
