Several hundred asylum seekers have already “disappeared” from Lithuania

Based on data from August 4, already 4,090 migrants have been detected illegally crossing the border into Lithuania this year. Most of them arrived through Belarus over the past few weeks. None of the asylum requests reviewed by the Migration Department have thus far been approved. Some of the reviews have stalled or been entirely terminated when those requesting asylum simply disappear. Such cases number already 200.
