Two Slovaks who were detained by Bulgarian police on May 13 on suspicion of complicity in people-trafficking have been released, Slovak Foreign Ministry spokesman Boris Gandel said on May 15, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Bulgarian police on the Bulgarian-Serbian border discovered 15 Somalis and two Afghans hidden in a lorry with a Slovak licence plate. The lorry was driven by a Romanian national who was taken into custody. At the same time, the police detained two Slovak citizens who were following the lorry in a car. They have now been freed, but remain witnesses in the case.

The lorry, owned by an unspecified Slovak company, was carrying two blocks of marble from Greece to Slovakia. Both marble pieces had cavities in which the Somalis and Afghans were hidden. The cavities were accessible from the bottom of the vehicle. The Bulgarian police discovered the migrants by using a special X-ray device.
