Migrants Secretly Board in Bulgarian Trucks on Different Country Borders

Refugees use the border crossings of Europe and board secretly in Bulgarian trucks. Authorities often catch them but they also punish the drivers of the trucks, Nova TV reported. 15 migrants have been detained in the last days of the border between Serbia and Croatia, and five drivers - fined.

According to Bulgarian carriers, most migrants want to get to England or Germany by entering the trucks during the drivers' breaks or before the border checkpoints. In an interview for Nova TV, Yordan Arabadzhiev, President of the Union of Carriers in Bulgaria, says the problem is most pronounced in Calais, France, where there are many migrants. Dimitar, an international driver, was captured at the beginning of September by the Croatian authorities on the border with Serbia with four Afghan men. According to him, they boarded without his knowledge, but with the assistance of the Serbian customs officers.

The fine paid by every driver whose truck is captured transferring people illegally is about EUR 4,500.
