(TAP)- An organiser of illegal immigration to Italian coasts was arrested by judicial police units under the Moknine National Security District in Monastir


He admitted having received a sum of money from an individual wishing to participate in an illegal migration operation.

The public prosecutor's office has ordered the suspect to be taken into custody and the necessary legal proceedings to be taken.

The Ministry of Interior also reported that National Guard units in the governorate of Sfax, on Saturday, arrested 11 people who were trying to cross the maritime borders using a fishing boat.

The Tunisian coasts have recently seen several operations of illegal crossing to the Italian coasts, prompting the authorities to step up coast surveillance to fight this phenomenon.
