Smuggling 16 illegal migrants

Police officers arrested offenders and foreigners who illegally crossed the state border.


On the morning of 16 November, during border security checks, Brežice police officers stopped a Citroen passenger car in Bukošek. They found a 23-year-old Croatian citizen transporting nine foreigners in his car. The foreigners had previously illegally crossed the state border. The Croatian citizen was arrested and brought before the investigating judge on 17 November. The judge ordered his detention. The foreigners, eight of them claim to be Iranian citizens and one Turkish citizen, were handed over to the Croatian security authorities.

In the Bojanci area, police officers arrested seven foreigners who were crossing the state border illegally. A Norwegian citizen was traced and arrested as well, for trying to transport foreigners with a passenger car to the interior of the country. The Norwegian was arrested and will be subject to criminal charges for the criminal offense of prohibited border or territory crossing. Two Syrian nationals requested international protection during the police proceedings and were taken to the asylum home. The other foreigners, three of whom claim to be citizens of Iraq and two who claim to be Algerian and Iranian respectively, were handed over to the Croatian security authorities.
