According to the officials, these people took a huge amount of somewhere between $53,000 and $66,000 for sending Chinese people to the United States of America and many countries in the Europe. These traffickers used to prepare false identities of these people.

"The composition of this perfectly structured, hierarchical organisation, with its kingpin in China and independent cells operating in different countries, completely shut off from each other, complicated the investigation," announced the police.

It took a period of long two years for the police to complete the investigation.
