Copenhagen (dpa) – Danish police said Wednesday 68 people have been arrested in connection with a swoop on a criminal network suspected of human trafficking and economic crimes, with links to Romania.
Police said that on Thursday they would seek a court order for the continued detention of 10 people who were suspected of human trafficking, forging documents, and fraud.
A Danish attorney and a Danish accountant were among the suspects, but were not suspected of involvement in people trafficking, police spokesman Karl Erik Agerbo told news agency Ritzau.
Police said that they were not seeking continued detention for about 50 suspects, mainly Romanian nationals.
The authorities said they believed their identities had been used to defraud government agencies, including the Danish tax authority, as well as banks and businesses.
