A group of 37 foreign nationals left Bosnia and Herzegovina late last night over the Deleusa border crossing. These are citizens of the United States, Canada and Guatemala who have caused public unrest in the past period, based on claims that members of the radical sect are Lev Tahor, the Service for Foreigners said.
The mentioned persons left Bosnia and Herzegovina before the expiration of the visa-free stay, respecting the legal provisions prescribed by the Law on Foreigners.
According to the statement, the inspectors of the Service for Foreigners’ Affairs performed operational checks and control of the mentioned persons on a daily basis, who were accommodated in two buildings in Mesa Selimovica Street, East Ilidza.
Namely, foreign citizens entered Bosnia and Herzegovina in November 2021 on the basis of the right to visa-free stay.
The Service for Foreigners conducted inspections of foreign nationals through available official records, including INTERPOL records.
Contact was made with the competent police administration, and the Service was informed that no violation of public order or peace or the commission of criminal offenses by foreign nationals was recorded.
The competent security agencies also performed additional checks on the said persons, and it was not determined that they pose a threat to the public order and security of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
As the citizens did not violate the provisions of the Law on Foreigners, there were no grounds for acting and imposing the measure of expulsion, or placing them under supervision in the immigration center, the Service for Foreigners said.
