Four Algerian citizens and another one from Morocco have been caught while attempting to illegally cross the border from Serbia to Romania, the Romanian Border Police informed on Tuesday. The immigrants told the border policemen they were trying to get to the western European countries.
“On August 15, around 23:00 hrs, the border police officers of Sannicolau Mare, in cooperation with the policemen in Dudestii Vechi found five males walking afield, from the border line with Serbia to inland in Romania. The border policemen detained them and brought them at the border police HQs for investigation,” reads a press release.
The five men, aged 20 to 25, had no ID papers. The young men told policemen they had been trying to illegally enter Romania as they intended to go to their relatives in Western Europe.
They are investigated for fraudulently crossing the state border.
