Stowaways under Lorries

illegal immigrant hidden under lorry at motril portThe Policía Nacional found three illegal immigrants hidden underneath lorries, coming through Motril Port of the Melilla ferry.

One of the men was found in a box-like compartment meant for tools, which is attached to the chassis.

Police dogs found the other two men simply tucked up and hanging on to the undersides of two other lorries.

The three young men, despite the conditions of their ‘trip’ so far, were not the worse for wear.

A little over a couple of weeks ago another stowaway was found in the luggage compartment of a bus.

The port is very busy at the moment with passenger traffic owing to the great influx of North African citizens having returned to the native countries for their summer holidays – many of whom have been making their ways out. This increased car and passenger traffic is known as the Operación Paso del Estrecho (OPE).
