Excise officers have seized 17 assault rifles, two machine guns, two pistols, cartridges and rounds of ammunition from an Albanian driver at the Röszke border crossing with Serbia, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office of Csongrád-Csanád County told MTI on Monday.
The weapons were stowed in a secret compartment in the door of the man’s car, which was stopped on Thursday morning for inspection, Ferenc Szarka said.
Legal proceedings have been launched against the man on charges of alleged weapons smuggling, he said.
The prosecutor’s office has initiated the suspect’s pre-trial detention, citing flight risk and the danger he would undermine the legal proceedings. A Szeged court ordered the man’s detention for one month, Szarka said.
As we wrote before, you will not be able to use all border crossings to Slovakia from 24 May, details HERE.
Also we wrote before, Hungary releases convicted foreign human smugglers, Austria outraged.
It was for underprivileged inner-city kids, I’m sure.
…And, after that month of detention, will that Albanian crim be allowed to go free like the “hundreds” of people smuglers?
