A British driver has been arrested with 14 illegal migrants in the back of his truck close to Dunkirk overnight from Wednesday to Thursday. The Kurdish-born driver at first refused to stop at a police checkpoint and fled into bushes along the A16 before being apprehended.
The migrants were all Iraqi nationals, the local judiciary reported. The driver was already known to the police, having been previously being stopped in similar circumstances near Modane, Savoie. The French border police are in charge of the new investigation, which is likely to bring charges of aiding a foreigner illegally in France.
The driver has been held in custody and is likely to face a court hearing within the next few days.
