A truck carrying 25 illegal immigrants was found at Igoumenitsa port. The truck was heading to Italy, leading authorities to believe that Greece was the transition point for the vehicle carrying the human cargo. The truck was supposedly carrying spare parts and source materials to Italy. The immigrants were hidden among the merchandise with the purpose of crossing the Greek border.
Members of the Port Police stopped the truck at midnight to run the routine checks. During their survey, they found four Somalis, eight Iraqis and thirteen Syrians without legal documents hidden in the back of the cargo space.
Policemen of the Central Port of Igoumenitsa are investigating the case. The vehicle was confiscated while the driver and the immigrants were arrested.
