On Tiktok People Smugglers Are Blatantly Advertising Their Services To Get Migrants To The Uk For Ps20000

Albanian criminals boldly advertise their services on TikTok and other social media sites, charging up to PS20,000 to smuggle migrants to the UK.
Human traffickers advertise on famous websites, sometimes mocking British officials’ attempts to stop them and providing slickly created step-by-step tutorials to help illegal migrants get into the UK, according to a Mail investigation.
They highlight the magnitude of the situation confronting Home Secretary Priti Patel, who recently traveled to Albania to sign a pact to expedite the repatriation of criminals and failed asylum claimants.
The number of migrants crossing the Channel has increased dramatically in recent days, reaching more over 8,000 for the year to date, greatly above the total for the entire year of 2020.
‘Anyone interested who’d like to travel to England contact my email,’ says one people smuggler, whose TikTok account has been viewed by tens of thousands of people.
‘Safe journey from Albania to the UK, 100%.’ His films include images of the Union Jack and Big Ben, along with the caption: ‘Secure journey from Albania to the UK, 100%.’
‘All interested who’d want to go to England contact my inbox.’ The number of migrants crossing the Channel has risen in recent days to more than 8,000 for the year so far – more than for all of 2020. One people smuggler, whose TikTok account has been viewed by tens of thousands of people, claims in his profile: ‘All interested who’d like to come to England contact my inbox.’

In other videos, he mocks British efforts to combat illegal migration by displaying images of a police raid on a property and offers to sell black market visas to bring individuals into the UK.
Another TikTok user, England Albania, posted a video of numerous Albanians inside a lorry, claiming to be on their way to the United Kingdom.
The Mail discovered advice on how to sneak into the UK from France, Holland, Belgium, Spain, and Portugal on a recently deleted Albanian account on TikTok.
It was dubbed ‘Trip to England,’ and it combined Google maps and professionally-made visuals to describe how to get from Caen, France, to the United Kingdom.
‘You have to be dressed like cleaners,’ it wrote, highlighting the optimal way.
The optimal time is at 5.50 a.m.’
Albanian smugglers were also seen promoting on an Instagram account named Journey-Belgium-London with a UK contact number, according to the Mail.
On the restricted Facebook page ‘Albanians in London,’ which has over 15,000 members, one Albanian using the name Leonard Sufa posted a photo of a vehicle with the comment: ‘Tomorrow a lorry,’ illustrating the extent of the problem facing Home Secretary Priti Patel, who just visited Albania to sign a pact speeding up deportations of criminals and rejected asylum seekers.
Last year, the Mail discovered Kledjan Kurtaj, an Albanian human trafficker who marketed on Facebook an ‘easy-peasy’ back-door way into Britain via Dublin using forged passports.
Rob Jones, the director of threat leadership at the National Crime Agency, told the House of Commons home affairs committee that criminal gangs frequently use social media to publicize smuggling routes and advertise fake or stolen documents.
According to him, the most popular social media platforms were Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Telegram, but the posts were also seen on YouTube and TikTok.

On July 21, National Crime Agency investigators arrested a man in Croydon as part of an NCA investigation aimed at dismantling an organized crime gang involved in unlawfully trafficking hundreds of Albanian migrants to the UK. According to an Albanian Border Police source, most traffickers are between the ages of 18 and 22, from disadvantaged areas of Albania, and are recruited by criminal networks to act as cannabiniers.
‘[They] agree to take this voyage and work as cannabis growers till they pay up to PS20,000, the cost of smuggling,’ he claimed. A TikTok spokeswoman confirmed the trafficking videos had been removed.
‘We have permanently banned some users for breaking our standards, and we will continue to take action when appropriate,’ he added.
‘We work collaboratively with law enforcement authorities throughout the world, including the NCA and Europol, to identify, delete, and report this illegal behavior,’ according to a representative.
