The same source states that in a train running on the route Bucharest North - Budapest, which stopped for control at the Curtici Border Crossing Point, two people were discovered who identified themselves with identity cards that did not belong to them. The documents were issued by the Belgian authorities, but during the verification, the border police found that "there were differences in physiognomy between the persons present at the checkpoint and the photographs in the documents," which is why the passengers were picked up for investigation.
Following the verifications, it was established that the two people are from Congo, they are 29 years old, and the documents presented belonged to other people.
