MOSCOW, August 23 (Itar-Tass) - Police officers have detained about 600 illegal immigrants at a vegetable warehouse in the town of Dolgoprudny to the north of Moscow. All of them had overstayed sojourn permits or other encroachments on migration laws, the press service of the Moscow Region’s Main Department of the Interior said Friday.
“A court has already passed rulings on deporting 33 of them from the Russian Federation and plight of the rests of the detainees is being considered at the moment,” a spokesman for the department said. “Seven persons had fake immigration documents.”
The immigrant workers were tracked down at two sites of compact residence located on the territory of the storage facility.
In the traditional Russian system of commerce, vegetable warehouses by and large function as wholesale companies supplying vegetables and fruit to department stores, public catering outlets and market vendors. Their personnel in many cases numbers several hundred people.
