The gang is believed to have worked in tandem with people-traffickers from the Balkans and is suspected of smuggling several hundred immigrants. It is believed to have links to Polish football hooligans.
The suspects were detained last month in the southern Polish city of Kraków.
They have been accused of being part of an organized criminal group, helping migrants to illegally cross the border and falsifying documents.
