For anyone who doesn't want to follow Mollers click bait the essence is.

1. Man broke down in rib in Oct 2014.
2. There were suspicions (which may or may not have been directed to the authorities at the time) that he had smuggled people over the channel.
3. He has been arrested (and remanded) over a year later in France on charges of people smuggling.
4. The boat operator doesn't actually get 10k a head for bringing people over.

PS. Remember politics is not permitted on ribnet.

Possibly explains why that rozzer on Easdale was so eager to get his great flat feet all over the willkcraft last June.

Good money tho...
