Fourteen foreign nationals hidden in corn

A 39-year-old Romanian citizen presented himself for border formalities on his way out of the country. The man was driving a road vehicle registered in Romania and was transporting, according to the documents accompanying the goods, organic corn on the Romania-Italy route.

Based on the risk profile, a thorough inspection of the vehicle was carried out, as a result of which the border police discovered, in the cargo compartment, in the transported corn, fourteen foreign citizens.

The persons in question were taken to the headquarters of the border police sector for investigation. During the checks, our colleagues established that they are citizens of various states (Tunisia, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Pakistan), aged between 21 and 39, who entered Romania legally.
