Border police officers found 28 Syrian citizens who were trying to enter Turkey illegally, hidden in a truck loaded with cabbage. The incident occurred at the Giurgiu Border Crossing Point in a truck that was being driven by a Turkish citizen. Twenty-six men and two women were found hidden in the semi-trailer of the truck after a thorough search based on potential risk, Turkish authorities said.
The group identified themselves as Syrians, although no documentation of any kind was found on them or in their belongings.
“Based on the protocol concluded between the border authorities between the two states, the persons found hidden, the Turkish driver and the road assembly were taken over by the Bulgarian Border Police in order to continue the investigations,” according to Border Security Report.
