“The operation began early in the morning [on Monday], in the area of Lisbon, Vila Franca de Xira and on the south bank of the Tagus River and involved 110 PJ agents, supported by elements of the Foreigners and Borders Service (SEF) and the Food and Economic Security Authority ( ASAE)…,” Público writes.

There were around “a dozen suspects, most of them from Southeast Asian countries, from India to Pakistan,” according to the Portugal Resident. The suspects allegedly ran a scheme “encouraging hundreds of thousands of online applications and requests for interviews by migrants, on the basis of purported work contracts,” the Portugal Resident writes.
