Foggia, December 7 - Carabinieri police arrested 19
people on Thursday, with eight in pre-trial custody in jail and
11 on house arrest, for alleged involvement in a fake-marriage
scam.
Investigators said the scam involved at least 15 Moroccan
citizens marrying Italian citizens in order to acquire entry
visas into the country, with costs for arranging the marriages
ranging between 7,000 and 10,000 euros each.
Investigators said the Italians willing to take part in the
marriages were allegedly paid 2,000 euros each and given an
airline ticket to travel to Morocco to marry a Moroccan citizen,
and the couple would then proceed to the Italian Embassy to
acquire an entry visa for the Moroccan citizen.
The suspects are charged with aiding and abetting illegal
immigration through producing false statements and documents in
Italy and abroad.
