Over 50 foreign citizens hidden in two vehicles, detected by the Romanian border police from Nădlac

Two Turkish citizens driving vehicles registered in Turkey, presented themselves for border formalities on the way out of the country. According to the documents accompanying the goods, the drivers were transporting PVC products and metal bars for commercial companies in the Czech Republic and Poland.

Based on the risk analysis, the border police carried out a thorough control of the vehicles. A total of fifty-one foreign citizens were discovered, hidden in the cargo compartments.

The persons were picked up and transported to the headquarters of the sector for investigations where, following checks, the border police established that they were citizens of Morocco, Turkey and Syria, who intended to fraudulently arrive in a state in Western Europe.
