Four women and three men are facing charges of committing the crime of immigration fraud and could be sentenced to two to eight years in prison. The alleged organiser of these marriages married a Chinese woman himself, allegedly for Sk30,000 (€996).

The Sme daily also wrote on March 20 that the lawyer had made his daughter marry a Chinese man.
