Young migrants apprehended at Sainte Devote

police34Three young migrants were picked up by police after being spotted by surveillance cameras near Place Sainte-Dévote on Friday afternoon.

The teenage boys told the Monaco Police that they were minors, but had no papers to prove their age. However, instead of being handed over to the French police, which would happen if they were adults, the three were taken to the Princess Charlene Children’s Home, administered by the Health and Social Affairs Directorate.

This is the first time that unaccompanied minors have been apprehended in Monaco as they have made their way from the Italian border to France as illegal immigrants.
