Bulgarian Border police detained 75 more illegal migrants on the Trakia highway, which connects the capital Sofia, Plovdiv and Burgas on the black sea coast. Several migrant activities have been observed recently on this highway. According to their spokesman Miroslav Stoyanov, Police in Pazardzhik stopped a Mercedes truck driven by a 56-year-old Bulgarian in the 86th mile in the Sofia direction.
The police pulled over a truck with an attached cargo compartment as they observed something strange about the vehicle and stopped it on the road for inspection.
Inside the cargo compartment, they found 75 migrants illegally entered the country. Every immigrant was arrested by the police and taken to the Sofia immigration centre. Although their identities have not been confirmed, it was anticipated that most of them are from Afghanistan.
The police have also taken custody of the driver who was transporting the migrants. He was taken to a local police station and underwent a drug test. The test reports came positive, and narcotics were also found in the truck.
Ivan Geshev, the chief prosecutor, stated, ” Government officials continuously say that there is no migrant pressure and everything is under control. However, the hospitals in Burgas have crowded with unidentified corpses that hunters discover in the woods. They cannot be freed since it is impossible to determine who they are.
Highlighting the continuously growing migrant problems, he stated that police from several provinces regularly detain drunken and drugged drivers who have always been a threat to other people’s lives. Migrants always caused trouble for both the citizens and the government of Bulgaria.
“Immigrants are killing police officers; police officers collide head-on. Undoubtedly, crime is on the rise. There hasn’t been any objective evidence of a drug distribution ring, at least not enough to warrant a hit order. We lead the world in black statistics, and there is evident conflict on the roadways. Numerous phone scams continue to be prevalent. Crimes are now perpetrated even when people are hungry. The government must take strict action to reduce crime, ensuring the security and safety of Bulgarian residents”.
