Another quartet of illegal immigrants detained by Chop border guards
In the area of Border Guard Service Department "Veliky Bereznyi" the situation with the detention of illegal Somali immigrants had a criminal "shade".
In the morning, a border detail which was on duty at a certain location, noticed and detained a citizen of Ukraine, who had just a few tens of metres left to the border. It should be noted that even after the voice warning to stop the man attempted to escape, so the detail was forced to warn him shooting into the air with the gun.
The border squad senior officer reported on the fact to the division and continued watching, and already in 5 minutes an operational unit entered the area in order to take special measures to search for the offenders.
After 25 minutes of search the operational unit and the border squads, which had detained the Ukrainian, caught his four "friends" too - one man and three women, Africans without documents. As the arrested explain themselves, they are the citizens of Somalia.
The decision on the liability and the fate of the detainees in Ukraine will be determined by the court.
The detained Ukrainian citizen may go to jail for a term of two to five years, and if the investigation finds out that he was "working as a guide" not for the first time or that a group of persons were engaged in this, he faces from three to seven years of imprisonment, - the press service of Chop border detachment informs.
