Around 3 pm on Saturday, a small boat with 13 illegal immigrants (including 3 minors) was spotted southeast of Cabo Greco.

Disobedient to the Port and Maritime Police, he set sail and went to the area, where he located and intercepted the compared vessel.

Due to the fact that the irregular migrants' boat took on water, they were picked up by the Akato of the Port and Maritime Police and brought safely to shore.

From further tests carried out, it was established that the driver of the small boat was a 24-year-old man, who was arrested to facilitate investigations.

The 24-year-old was taken into custody, while the other persons were transferred to the accommodation center in Pournara.

The exams continue.
