In the Polish-Lithuanian section, Border Guard officers detained another courier and 11 foreigners who, contrary to the regulations, crossed the border from Lithuania to Poland.
On the September 29th, in the commune of Wiżajny, officers from the Border Guard Post in Dubeninki detained a 38-year-old citizen of Ukraine for inspection. It turned out that he was carrying 9 illegal migrants in VW Multivan on Polish registration numbers. The inspection of the legality of foreigners’ stay carried out by officers from the Border Guard Post in Rutka-Tartak showed that they were Afghan citizens who had illegally crossed the border from Lithuania to Poland. Foreigners (aged 22 to 32) did not have documents authorizing them to enter and stay in our country.
On the same day, in the Szypliszki commune, officers from the Border Guard Post in Rutka-Tartak detained another 2 foreigners who had illegally crossed the Polish-Lithuanian border. During the inspection on the Riga-Berlin scheduled coach, 2 passengers (a 22-year-old Guinean citizen and a 25-year-old Congo citizen) did not have the required documents with them, authorizing them to legally enter and stay in the territory of Poland. They only showed certificates from the Lithuanian center for foreigners. All foreigners were detained and then transferred to the Lithuanian side as part of readmission. K.Urier, a citizen of Ukraine, will, in turn, be accused of aiding in organizing the illegal border crossing. Additionally, administrative proceedings will be initiated against him in order to issue a decision obliging him to return to his country of origin. He will also be banned from entering the Schengen area for 5 years.
