Yesterday, around 6.30, while performing border control the police officers of the Petišovci Border Police Station checked a driver of a combined vehicle with Croation registration numbers at the entrance from the Republic of Croatia to the Republic of Slovenia at the Petišovci border crossing.
The interior of a vehicle was inspected. There they found polystyrene and under it a wooden cupboard in which five citizens of Iraq were discovered, who crossed the state border illegally. The suspected Croatian citizen was taken into custody and will face criminal charges due to a prohibited act of crossing the border or territory of the country, and will be taken before the investigating judge. After the police proceedings, the foreigners were returned to the Croatian security authorities.
