against her will. my goal is to one day be able to leave and find a suitable place to lead i do not want to be threatened anywhere who had heard the opening of the shelter has been hailed as a major step forward but activists say the law which allowed for these women to be held in the first place must be repealed to guarantee this never happens again. smuggling is a thing of the past in ireland for now but whether breaks it comes with or without a deal the frontiere between the republic of ireland and e.u. member and northern ireland part of the united kingdom could put smugglers back in business. for the money go to three hundred fifty. mike has plenty of tales of smuggling to taro he lives in northern ireland right next to the border the former truck driver says lots of shady stuff went on in the

area in the past much of it involving customs control or between the british province and the e.u. member state to the cells i see me going to shit what's the lorry so we're going to this big ship. made a very through that door that door let's share that shit. in the series about it so he thought that if it's impossible i getting rid of controls didn't get rid of smuggling completely fireworks which are banned in the republic of ireland are still taken across regularly there are legal in the north and sales of them are brisk in the border region. and foreign diesel subsidized by the e.u. also often crosses the border illegally as does heating oil from northern ireland that's not been slapped with a value added tax because there are no controls. conor patterson remembers a very different time into the one nine hundred ninety s. thousands of trucks were checked by customs officials in the sheds they disappeared
