The Civil Guard in San Esteban de Gormaz intercepted two Albanian citizens and handed them over to the National Police Brigade in Soria. They are now in the process of being deported from Spain.
Both individuals were detained this past Friday for alleged infringement of article 53.1. a) Organic Law 4/2000 on the rights and freedoms of foreigners in Spain, considered to be a serious offense. What makes their offense so serious? They were found illegally residing in the country, which means that they were found without a renewed residence permit, an initial residence permit, or with an expired residence permit of 3 months or more (only in cases where the foreigner has not applied to renew the expired permit).
This is why both individuals were handed over to the Soria National Police Brigade where they await for deportation.
