37 foreign citizens found hiding in vehicles at the Romanian border

a Georgian citizen and a Turk, driving a van and a vehicle, presented themselves for border formalities on the way out of the country road registered in Poland and Turkey. According to the documents accompanying the goods, the drivers were transporting pallets and metal for commercial companies in Austria.

Based on the risk analysis, the border police carried out a thorough control of the means of transport. A total of 37 foreign citizens were discovered hidden in the cargo compartment, respectively in the storage crates on the sides of the semi-trailer .

The persons were picked up and transported to the headquarters of the sector for investigations where, following checks, our colleagues established that they are citizens of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal, who entered Romania legally.
