Woman caught trying to sneak into European Union by hiding in her husband’s suitcase

Imagine the shock on Polish guard’s faces when they asked a French man to open his suitcase and a woman popped out!

According to an article on dw, “border guards have detained a French citizen who packed his Russian wife in a suitcase, attempting to smuggle her over the Belarus border.”  According to officials the man was in his 60’s and was traveling from Moscow to Nice by train.

“The size of the man’s suitcase drew the attention of the officers, border guard spokesman Dariusz Sienicki said, To their surprise, a woman in her 30s emerged. It was the Russian wife of the owner of the suitcase.”

The woman was in good condition and didn’t need any medical attention. After all their planning and her amazing act of contortion, they were informed that her attempt to be smuggled over the Belarus border was unnecessary.

people without European Union citizenship are allowed to enter the passport-free Schengen zone if they can prove they are married to an EU citizen!
