During two January days (28-29), seven helpers in organizing illegal border crossings were detained
Four people involved in helping foreigners illegally cross the border were discovered. Border Guard officers from the Post in Białowieża detained an Azerbaijani citizen who hid 8 Egyptians and 3 Sudanese under the tarpaulin of a truck. In the area of Narewka, a resident of Turkmenistan was found transporting 3 Afghans, and in the vicinity of Dubicze Cerkiewne, a citizen of Ukraine tried to transport a Yemenite into Europe with his car. As many as 14 illegal migrants (Syria, Egypt) were to be picked up by a Ukrainian citizen, who was detained for road control by officers from the Border Guard Post in Nowy Dwór.
Sunday turned out to be unlucky for a Georgian and a Ukrainian who tried to pick up 6 Eritrean citizens from the Krynki area. In turn, officers of the Border Guard in the Nowy Dwór area detained another citizen of Ukraine on his way to pick up foreigners who had previously illegally entered the territory of Poland.
