Teenager charged with people-smuggling offence after four died while crossing Channel

After four people were killed while crossing the Channel, a teenager was charged with people-smuggling.

Police arrested Ibrahima Bah (19) of no fixed address following the incident.

When a boat carrying migrants sank in the Channel, it resulted in four deaths and 39 being rescued.

Kent Police stated that Bah was charged “knowingly with facilitating the attempted arrival in Britain of people he knew or had reasonably cause to believe were asylum seekers”.


He was taken into custody and will be appearing before the Folkestone Magistrates Court on Monday.

Following reports of a boat in distress, the Royal Navy, French Navy, Coastguard, and RNLI lifeboats all joined the massive rescue operation off the Kent coast.

Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate are investigating the circumstances of the deaths, with the assistance of the National Crime Agency.

More information from the UK

Police continue to work with the police to identify those who have died and find their next of kin.

According to government statistics, more than 44,000 people have crossed the English Channel this year.
