Taxi driver accused

Last week, a taxi driver was stopped and arrested by the police. He was accused for transporting refugees without papers. The taxi driver tried to explain that an 16 year old afghan boy, with papers asked him to drive him to another place to pick up his sister. when they arrived, there were three women and a child waiting, and entered the taxi. While they were driving a police car which was observing him caught them and arrested them all, including the taxi driver.

The president of the taxi drivers union, in Mytilini, commanded that taxi drivers will be obliged to control the papers of their guest.

The danish court decision during the process against german taxi driver, that’s says that the police can not oblige the taxi drivers to control the papers of there guests is obviously not known yet
