Jail him then deport him…
Former Syrian beach football player convicted in Norway for people smuggling
The man, originally from Syria, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for breaking immigration laws and for falsifying documents, newspaper Dagbladet reports.
He was found to have illegally assisted around twenty people in travelling to Norway and Europe.
Norwegian police became aware of the case on the basis of a tip-off from police in the Czech Republic, who found that the man had acted as a middle man in connection with a case involving production of false identification papers in Eastern Europe, Dagbladet writes.
After arresting the man and searching his home in Oslo, police found that he once represented Syria’s national beach football team.
