Germany Detains 31 Iraqi Immigrants at Polish Borders

German police authorities raided a truck boarded by 31 Iraqi immigrants and detained them while on their way to Germany on Saturday, October 23.

Onboard were 19 men, two women, 10 children, and a Polish driver, and were found near the German-Polish border located in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The truck driver was an alleged migrant smuggler.

The truck allegedly passed through Vorpommern-Greifswald district’s Blankensee border before authorities intercepted them in Bük city. 

The police brought them to the Pasfalk police station for questioning and processing. 

Germany and Poland suspected Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko of moving expatriates from disastrous areas to external European Union borders. Lukashenko previously threatened that he won’t stop settlers from travelling to EU nations due to Western countries’ retributions regarding the Ryanair flight hijacking. 

German federal police had recorded a total of 4,246 illegal migrations linked with Belarus for October, while 6,657 have been registered for 2021.
