Police signalled to a car equipped with Swiss licence plates to stop but the driver sped away. The migrant smugglers then abandoned the vehicle on the Thessaloniki-Kavala motorway and managed to escape, taking advantage of darkness and dense vegetation in the area.
Deportation proceedings have been launched for the illegal immigrants, while the vehicle was confiscated.
