Leader of £7m people smuggling gang to be deported: Asylum seeker facing 20 years in Greek prison after judge orders he is extradited to stand trial
- Jamal Owda allegedly headed one of Europe’s biggest smuggling gangs
- The Palestinian is accused of trafficking over 50,000 Syrians
- He is said to have run the group from his asylum hostel room in Liverpool
- His asylum application was rejected after he was found in a lorry in 2014
Palestinian Jamal Owda is accused of being the mastermind behind the gang
An asylum seeker said to have run one of Europe’s biggest people trafficking gangs faces 20 years in jail after a judge ordered his extradition to stand trial in Greece.
Palestinian Jamal Owda is accused of being the mastermind behind the gang which allegedly smuggled more than 50,000 Syrians into Europe in a £7million operation.
The gang, which Owda is said to have run from his room in an asylum hostel in Liverpool, is estimated to have smuggled 100 Syrians across the European border every day for 16 months.
The 27-year-old, whose application for asylum was rejected after he entered Britain in the back of a lorry in 2014, was accused of malingering after a judge said he did not believe his claim to have attempted suicide.
Owda was arrested in a dawn raid in December 2015 when police found £17,500 in cash hidden in a speaker in his hostel room.
He is charged with being involved in a 22-man group which smuggled people into Europe between July 2014 and November 2015, running a similar operation between March and May 2015.
Owda fought his deportation on the grounds that Greek prison conditions would breach his human rights and that he is suffering post-traumatic stress after growing up in the war-torn city of Gaza.
