20 foreign nationals were arrested while they were planning to cross the border into Hungary illegally

At the Romanian Nădlac II Border Crossing Point, Arad County, a Romanian citizen, driving a road set up registered in Romania, showed up for the border formalities on the way out of the country. According to the documents accompanying the goods, he was transporting tin rolls on the Romania-Germany route.

Eighteen foreign nationals were found hidden in the cargo compartment after carrying out a thorough inspection of the means of transport.

The persons were taken and transported to the headquarters of the sector for investigations where, following the verifications, the border police established that they are citizens of Afghanistan, most of them asylum seekers in Romania.

Also yesterday, the border guards from the Nădlac Border Police Sector noticed, during the execution of the specific missions, about 5 kilometers from the borderline, two people walking on the border with the neighboring state. As they did not justify their presence in the area, they were taken to the sector headquarters for checks. Following the research, it was established that they are citizens of Tunisia, asylum seekers in Romania.
