Calais Jungle migrants facing months-long prison sentence for ‘illegal hawking’
Ten illegal immigrants, who all run unlicensed food stalls and corner shops in the sordid ‘Jungle’ camp, face spending time behind bars and may also have to pay a €150 (£132) fine.
An eleventh hawker was arrested but has since been discharged.
Back in July, local authorities ransacked all of the makeshift shops operating in the Calais ‘Jungle’: 18 migrants were remanded in custody after it was found that they had been buying and selling goods illegally.
The migrants were accused of selling mobile phones, fizzy drinks, ready-made meals, and canned food to other refugees.
