Two bigwigs arrested in Somali human trafficking ring in Nairobi; helped illegal migrants get to Malta (and US)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 16, 2013

This story not only involves bigwigs, but is so big it should be reported on the front page of the New York Times. Maybe a follow-up is due to their previous superficial reporting on Malta.

For years I’ve been writing about how the tiny island nation of Malta has been besieged by illegal Africans trying to get to Europe and beyond.  The ‘beyond’ includes the United States!  Aided by the Catholic Church, the US State Department (started in the Bush Administration) has made it a priority to transform illegal migrants on Malta into legitimate “refugees” destined for your towns.   I have literally over a hundred posts here on the disgusting and frankly illegal business.  (Type ‘Malta’ into our search function for 5 years of history).

Here is the story that I first saw at Horseed Media, but is from Malta Today (yesterday) with this headline:

Italian diplomat, WFP collaborator among 55 arrested for trafficking Somalis to Malta

Italian police arrest 55, including Italian diplomat at Nairobi embassy in connection with a criminal organisation which has diverted Somali migrants to Malta.

Italian police have said that they have dealt a strong blow to two criminal organisations which profiteered from trafficking Somali nationals from Libya to Malta over the past months.

Nabbed were a cultural attache at the Italian embassy and a worker for the World Food Programme (UN of course)!

The investigations – reportedly held in conjunction with Maltese authorities – led to the arrest at dawn of 55 people, including Hussein Mohamed Abdurahman, nicknamed ‘Banjè’, the cultural attaché at the Italian embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, and Mohamed Sheik Ali Bashir a World Food Programme Collaborator.

The organisations, said to have branches in Kenya and Italy, took care of coordinating the Somali nationals movements from the horn of Africa towards Libya, and later organised their clandestine trips to Malta and also to Greece.

The organisations also saw to providing hundreds of Somalis with false documents to later abscond from Malta and make their way to Italy, and further North in Europe. [and to the US–ed]

In raids which involved 200 officers, arrests were made in Rome, Milan, Turin, Florence, Prato, Bergamo, Cuneo and Naples.

Other raids are said to be ongoing this morning in Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Another 23 people have meanwhile been notified to have been placed under investigation by the Italian authorities for their secondary role in assisting the Somali migrants, by providing them logistical support.

Further investigations are ongoing in Ragusa, Sicily – another known landing point for migrants fleeing Libya after Malta.

According to a spokesman, the investigations were coordinated by Eurojust, and Europol.

Hundreds and hundreds of these Somali illegal aliens (mostly young men!) trafficked to Malta through Obama’s Libya are now in your towns in America!
