On May 4, officers of the Border and Alien Police detained 20 people, mainly of Serbian origin, suspected of unauthorised residence in Slovakia and extradited them. They also set a deadline for the Serbs to leave the country, the Pravda daily wrote.

The police mostly focused on a hostel on J. Botto Street in Trnava, that accommodates foreign workers from nearby plants, spokesman Martin Wäldl of the Police Presidium informed the SITA newswire, adding that these are mainly from Serbia.

The nation-wide operation was aimed mostly at checking the authorised stays of foreign citizens of third countries in Slovak territory, according to Wäldl, as well as enforcing the terms of the stay, uncovering crimes and misdemeanours and the search for wanted persons.
