Fifteen foreign citizens detected by the Arad border police

At the Romanian Nădlac II Border Crossing Point, a Turkish citizen, driving a truck registered in Romania, showed up for the border on the way out of the country. According to the documents accompanying the goods, he was transporting textiles to a German company.

Following a thorough inspection of the means of vehicle, nine foreign nationals were discovered hidden in the cargo compartment.

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 Syria and Turkey.

On 24.04.2022, the border guards from the Nădlac Border Police Sector noticed, approximately 10 meters from the border line, six people walking. As they did not justify their presence in the area, they were taken to the sector headquarters for checks. As a result of the research, it was established that there are citizens of Cameroon, Nigeria and Congo, asylum seekers.
