AOSTA. A 66-year-old Italian resident in Switzerland and a thirty-year-old Albanian were sentenced to 8 months of imprisonment (suspended sentence) by the Court of Aosta. They had been arrested last Tuesday afternoon by the state police at the Mont Blanc tunnel respectively for aiding illegal immigration and for having returned to Italy in violation of an expulsion decree.
The 66-year-old resident of Switzerland was driving three illegal Albanian citizens and was arrested. One of the passengers, the 30-year-old, was expelled in May 2020 on the orders of a Veneto police headquarters and could not return to Italy for five years. Following the conviction, the man was provided with a new expulsion decree.
