Slovenia sends 80 migrants back to Croatia


In recent weeks Slovenia has sent back to Croatia 80 migrants who did not say during the registration process that they would seek asylum in Austria or Germany, or did not meet the requirement for entry into the Schengen area because they did not come from a war-affected area, Slovenian television said on Wednesday.

Some of the migrants who were turned back later again tried to enter Slovenia without the knowledge of the Croatian police, and some did so successfully, a source from the border police told Slovenian television, adding that the Croatian police were expected to send them back to Serbia from where they had entered Croatia.

The Slovenian police said that these were minor and isolated cases and that cooperation with the Croatian police was good and in accordance with an agreement.
