Juliaus Kalinsko / 15min nuotr. / Pasas

Lithuanian border guards have detained a female Mali citizen at Panemunė border checkpoint who arrived from Russia's Kaliningrad region. Officers of the State Border Guard Service identified that the woman had a fake Schengen visa and wanted to send her back to Russia, but the woman asked for political asylum in Lithuania.

According to a statement by the State Border Guard Service, Lithuanian border guards were checking passenger documents on a Kaliningrad-Tallinn coach on Wednesday and identified that passport presented by a Mali citizen contained a Schengen visa allegedly issued by France, which was fake. The woman was removed from the bus. Border guards wanted to send her back to Russia but she asked for political asylum in Lithuania.

Lithuanian officers initiated necessary procedures and informed the Division on Asylum Affairs of the Migration Department.

The woman was put into custody after a pre-trial investigation was launched regarding forged documents.
