Customs officers prevent migrants from crossing the state border illegally hidden among the goods in truck loads on a daily basis, and the fact that 1,148 people were prevented in this plan last year alone shows that they are more than successful.

However, on March 2, 2021, customs officers and police officers on Horgos witnessed an extremely unusual attempt of this kind.

Namely, four migrants tried to reach the EU hidden among thuja seedlings, which were loaded with a Macedonian truck on the way to Germany.

After the opening of the cargo area, customs officers and police officers found four hidden younger men among the densely packed seedlings.
