22 transmigrants are at risk of 6 months in prison for the port entrance in Zeebrugge: remarkably many Eritreans were arrested at the end of last year


-Twenty-two transmigrants, including fourteen from Eritrea, had to account for the Brugge criminal judge for the entry into the port of Zeebrugge

-The port of Zeebrugge is often seen by transmigrants as the gateway to the United Kingdom. To counter that problem, the entry of a port facility since the middle of June 2016 is a criminal offense.
The port of Zeebrugge remains a favorite area for transmigrants. BELGA The port of Zeebrugge remains a favorite area for transmigrants.
BRUGGE Twenty-two transmigrants had to report to the court on Friday morning for the entry into the port in Zeebrugge. At least fourteen of them turned out to be from Eritrea at the end of last year.
The port of Zeebrugge remains an attraction for the transmigrants to get to Great Britain. They try to get into trucks or to entrench themselves in a ferry in other ways. On Friday morning, twenty-two port intruders ended up in the Brugge court. They were all arrested in the port area in November or December last year, a practice that has been made punishable by a new law since June 2016. Remarkable: among the twenty-two defendants on Friday morning, there were no less than fourteen Eritreans. It is a phenomenon that the Brugge public prosecutor has been observing for several months. In the past autumn about 25 percent of the arrested transmigrants came from the African country. The transmigrants are normally 6 months in prison and 800 euros above their heads, unless they have already been caught several times. One Eritrean turned out to have been condemned on October 3, but was arrested again in the harbor on 17 November. He now risks 1 year in prison. Judgment on February 8th.
