Four illegal migrants who have yesterday illegally crossed the Croatian-Slovenian border in Bela Krajina (Slovenia) abducted a local farmer when he worked in the vineyard, said his daughter Natasha.
The kidnapping took place near the village called Mali Nerajec near the Croatian-Slovenian border, while the locals name is Mr.Mirko Moravec, aged 80 years. According to his daughter Natasha, her father was working in the vineyard while he was attacked by four men, who tied him with a rope and locked him up in the trunk of his car. Then they sat in the car and continued their way to Italy. In Sežana, his father was thrown out of the car.
“Everything was well organized; migrants had two Slovenian guides (a couple) who were betraying that they were archaeologists. So they could approach him and looked up at the circumstances,” says one of the locals, about the hideous kidnapping of an elderly man.
Otherwise, daughter Natasa Moravec-Jakofcic told the local Radio Odeon that her father, Mr. Mirko Moravec, went to the vineyard, just above the village, yesterday at around 8 in the morning. At about 10 o’clock she brought him a lunch and they spoke a little. Then he called her around 13:00 and ordered her to bring him a sprayer. When she arrived, he told her that he had two guests, who had introduce to him as an archaeologist. These two told him that the place was interesting and that they could find there some archaeological remains.
She returned back, then at about 13.30 and she saw that her father’s car just passed by. She did not see if there was a father in the car. After a while, she began to worry about where he had gone; therefore her son went to the vineyard and called her, saying that her father was not there. She began to call out the acquaintances, who did not even know where her father was.
At about 18.00 o’clock, some lady called her and introduced herself as Sežančanka. She said that her father was with her.
“I was in shock because I did not know what he would do in Sežana at six in the afternoon. She told me that they tied him, put him in the trunk and drove off and then he was thrown out of the car in the forest near Sežana. Then he himself searched for the first house, in order to be able to call us at all,” said Natasa Moravec-Jakofcic for the Radio Odeon.
According to our information, the police spent long time in the evening exploring the scene of the incident and then information came from Italy, that the kidnappers had been captured by the local security authorities.
More details of the alleged kidnapping will be explained by Slovene police officers tomorrow at a press conference.
