At  the Romanian Cenad Border Crossing Point, Timiş County, a 44-year-old Romanian citizen presented himself for border formalities on his way out of the country. The man was driving a car with a trailer, both registered in Romania.

Based on the risk profile, a thorough check was carried out, as a result of which the border police discovered, in the trailer of the car,  three foreign citizens, hidden among mattresses, blankets and other personal products.

The persons in question were taken to the headquarters of the border police sector for investigation.
