The Ministry of justice announced on Friday that it prosecuted the highest number ever of migration-specific offences prosecuted in fiscal year 2019 — turning what is a trend in the decline in recent years, a number of metrics.

In the meantime, 4,297 people were charged with “alien smuggling”,” up from 3,724 in fiscal year 2018 and 3,310 in the fiscal year 2017. This number has slowly risen, from 2014, where only 2,762 people have been charged with alien smuggling.
