SEF makes arrests in Braga's club for alleged illegal immigration

Portugal's Foreigners and Borders Service (SEF) on Monday arrested a manager and some football players of Palmeiras Futebol Clube, in Braga, in a monitoring exercise related to illegal immigration, a police source told Lusa News Agency.

The source said it is still not possible to specify the number of detainees because steps are still being taken.

According to the same source, the detainees will be taken on Tuesday to a court in Braga for the first questioning and application of their coercion measures.

The detained players are not from Portugal and are in an irregular situation in the country.

The Palmeiras Futebol Clube competes in the first division of the district football association of Braga.
