Guatemalan authorities believe the accomplice of an Indian man captured in the airport in New Dehli this week connected to human trafficking is in Guatemala, the newspaper elPeriódico reports. The man, Ronnie Pali, is thought be part of a network that collects up to $66,500 to channel people through Guatemala, with fake passports, on their way to the United States or Canada. The officials believe the operators, Indians and Guatemalans alike, take the migrants Indian passports and house them in Guatemala until they get paid. The police discovered the network after arresting a group of Indians in the province of Retalhuleu who said they had no identification and said they had escaped from a nearby house where they were being kept.
