An unusual situation caught the attention of passers-by and commuters on Thursday afternoon (December 2nd): a bus of the German Federal Police stopped suddenly in the Salzburg district of Liefering on the Munich main road immediately after the border.

Freilassing / Salzburg – Unusual because refugees who die illegally enter Germany and do not apply for asylum there are usually officially returned to Austria. That means either the Salzburg police will pick up the people in Freilassing or the German Federal Police will bring them to the Aliens Police Inspection directly at the Saalbrücke.
Not so on Thursday lunchtime, a call to the Salzburg police revealed that they knew about such a “transfer”, our assumption that. Further research with the German Federal Police then revealed the following: During the inspection of a coach on the Walserberg, an Albanian family was discovered taken from the bus, “who did not meet the entry requirements according to the Schengen Borders Code,” said the spokeswoman for the federal police in Freilassing. The young family consisted of the father (24), the mother (21) and a four-year-old girl. “They wanted to stay for a longer period of time and could not provide proof of the required visa or the necessary cash,” which is why they were refused entry. The people were reported because of the attempted unauthorized entry and returned to Austria – where they are legally allowed to stay.
In general, all transfers would take place in consultation with the respective authorities in the neighboring country, the spokeswoman assured, “In this case the people were returned to Austria without physically handing them over to the authorities there – after a case-by-case agreement between the Bundespolizeiinspektion Freilassing and the Salzburg Aliens Police “. The young family was driven by federal police officers to the next bus stop shortly after the border in order to make it easier for them to travel on by public transport.
