Yesterday, shortly after 10.00, a driver of a truck with a trailer attached brought cargo to Veržej, and two foreigners jumped out of the truck when they stopped. The driver of the truck was found to have come from the Republic of Hungary. The foreigners hid in the chassis of the attached trailer at a petrol station in Hungary at around 4.00 on the same day, while the truck was parked due to the driver’s rest.

In doing so, one of the foreigners hid on a spare tire and the other on the axle of the trailer. The driver of the truck did not stop until the place where the two foreigners were tracked down and then arrested. The foreigners, citizens of Morocco, have applied for international protection.
