At the press conference it emerged authorities were working in three directions. The first is against those, who have made a career out of human traffic. Secondly, authorities are searching vehicles and buildings in the border regions, where it is assumed that there is a risk.


Third, they are searching high-risk premises in Sofia, Dragoman, Vidin, and Montana. They are checking houses, hostels and abandoned buildings. 38 pre-trial proceedings have been initiated and 46 individuals have been arrested.
