A group of illegal immigrants detained in Silesia

The Silesian Border Guard Department detained 34 foreigners who had illegally taken from Slovakia to Poland in a truck trailer. The driver of the vehicle, a Turkish citizen, was also detained for the case.

Illegal immigrants were arrested near the town of Kobiór (Pszczyna poviat). The foreigners did not have any documents with them. They declared that they come from Syria, Iraq, Iran and Turkey. Among them there are 4 children.

The immigrants were examined by a doctor. They feel well and do not require hospitalization. The Border Guard officers provided them with food and drinks. Currently, the detainees are subject to official activities aimed at confirming their citizenship, identity, route and identification of possible organizers of this illegal trip.
