The European Border and Coast Guard Agency known as Frontex, led on 28 June-8 July an international operation known as Joint Action Day, against organized cross-border crime in Central and South Eastern Europe.
The internal cooperation was co-led by Austria, and the opportunity for information exchange between the countries was provided by EU agencies and international organizations, such as Europol and Interpol.
The operation led to the arrest of 26 suspected people smugglers, seizure of €403 850 in smuggled cash, and the detection of 2760 irregular migrants.
