Woman attempts to smuggle herself into Turkey in suitcase
ARTVİNTurkish police have detained two Georgians on the border between the two countries, after one hid herself inside a suitcase in order to be smuggled into Turkey.
Suspicions of customs police were aroused by the behaviour of a 25-year-old Georgian man who had entered Turkey via the Sarp Border Crossing, Doğan News Agency reported on March 23. The man was forced to open his luggage, and a 22-year-old Georgian woman was found inside, crouched silently in the fetal position.
Both were briefly detained for illegally crossing the border, before being deported.
The woman had reportedly attempted to smuggle herself into Turkey following a previous ban on her entry.
