The Lithuanian Minister of the Interior Agnė Bilotaitė applied to the Prosecutor General's Office regarding the organization of illegal cross-border transportation of people. The press center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs reports this.
"For several weeks now, immigrants from third countries have been crossing the border illegally, and we are seeing signs that this can be done in an organized way. We cannot tolerate such things, therefore I applied to the Prosecutor General's Office to start an investigation, ”says the Minister of the Interior Agnė Bilotaitė.
The department clarified that 392 third-country nationals who illegally crossed the Lithuanian state border with Belarus have been detained since the beginning of the year. This year from June 1 until June 16, 204 migrants crossed the border illegally. Enhanced border protection with Belarus is already underway, and other state institutions and services are being mobilized and involved.
As a reminder, Illegal migration from Belarus to Lithuania has doubled and Belarusian border guards are trying to hide the fact. It was reported that Belarusian border guards do not react to our incidents - when they are presented with strong evidence and arguments in connection with the violation of the border, they do not admit the violation.
