A witness had looked closely and notified the Ebersberg police: In a wooded area near Oberpframmern, 13 people were abandoned - all asylum seekers.
Oberpframmern - The Ebersberg police officers do not experience this every day: Wednesday evening they were called to Oberpframmern. According to the witness, a suspicious vehicle with an Austrian registration had driven into a wooded area. After several people got out of the van, the van drove away in an unknown direction. The officers of the PI Ebersberg then found a total of 13 people in the forest, three families with children, all with Turkish citizenship.
The asylum seekers were taken to an initial reception centre
The immigrants stated to the police officers that they had been smuggled in by overland by backers who were previously unknown in this country and that they had paid money for it. In order to carry out the identity verification and the asylum procedure, all persons were brought to the office in Ebersberg. After completion of the measures, the asylum seekers were handed over to an initial reception center, the police said. Witnesses who can make suspicious observations in the area of the municipality of Oberpframmern, in particular in connection with a van with Austrian registration, are asked to report to the Ebersberg police station on the telephone number (0 80 92) 82 68-0.
