Eighteen foreign citizens, detected in an attempt to cross the border illegally

At the Romanian Nădlac II Border Crossing Point , a Turkish citizen, driving a road vehicle registered in Turkey, presented himself for border formalities on the way out of the country. According to the documents accompanying the goods, the driver was transporting metal profiles for a commercial company in Germany.

Following the thorough inspection of the vehicle, 18 foreign citizens were discovered hidden in the semi-trailer, among the transported goods.

The persons were picked up and transported to the headquarters of the sector for investigations where, following checks, the border police established that they are citizens of Nepal, Syria and Bangladesh, some of them having entered legally, and others being asylum seekers in Romania.
