Bulgaria’s Prime Minister said today that the truck found with 39 bodies inside in Grays, England, had not entered Bulgaria since 2017.
Speaking on Bulgarian television channel bTV, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said: “The truck was registered in 2017, in Bulgaria.”
Some background: CNN saw the truck being moved later on Wednesday. Police said it would be moved to a “secure location” at Tilbury docks, about a 20-minute drive away from Grays, to “maintain the dignity of those who have lost their lives.”
Paul Berry — a local councilor for Armagh in Northern Ireland — identified the driver of the truck as Morris Robinson. Berry told CNN that he learned of the arrest after speaking with Robinson’s father.
