Bulgarian border police captured ten illegal Syrian immigrants after a chase. The driver was a 22-year-old Serbian national and believed to be a trafficker. He ignored every signal given by the Police to stop driving across the city. The Police finally succeeded in intercepting the immigrant’s car after a long chase in Burgas.
Chief Inspector Zivko Enev, director of the “Security Police” division at the Fifth District Office, stated that the Serbian automobile carrying unauthorised immigrants was reported to 112. They travelled via Nikola Petkov Boulevard, Todor Alexandrov Boulevard, Struga Street, Stefan Stambolov Boulevard, Trapezitsa Square, and Nikola Alexandrov Boulevard before being stopped at a dead end in the Zornitsa neighbourhood.
According to the sources, a ten-year-old child was also among the illegal Syberian immigrants. A local citizen reported the file after noticing too many people in the car.
This is the third illustration of Serbian vehicles carrying unauthorised immigrants. The first incident of Serbian citizen trafficking migrants occurred last Thursday night, the second on Saturday night, and this is the third instance thus far.
