Erimas Ghermay, alias "the Ethiopian", is at the centre of a people smuggling network bringing refugees and migrants to Europe. Under his watch, "colonels" all over Africa and Europe move them around the world. Many of people have drowned in Ghermay's boats. If they survive, and reach the coastlines of Southern Europe, they can fall prey to Italian organised crime and various mafia groups, whose control extends inside some Europe's largest migrant centres. Using transcripts of Ghermay's phone calls recorded secretly by the Italian police, Newsweek reporters Connie Agius and Alex Perry piece together the details of how Ghermay plies his deadly trade for this eBook.
