The detention took place in Bratislava, on Kopčianska Street, on April 29 as they were heading towards the D1 highway, direction Austria.

Among the Afghans, there were 11 adults and 18 children and teens, who ended up in the Police Restraint Department in Sečovce (in Košice Region, eastern Slovakia). The Pakistanis were all adults, and so they were taken to the detention camp in Medveďov (in Trnava Region, western Slovakia).

All of them illegally crossed the Slovak border and as they have asked for asylum in Hungary, they will be sent there based on the Dublin Convention, police spokesman Martin Wäldl informed the Pravda daily.

The Dublin Convention stipulates that refugees shall stay in the country where they had asked for asylum.
