Lorry ‘stowaway’ from Afghanistan found on motorway

A foreign national discovered on the side of a motorway with no identification and no English has been remanded in custody at Cloverhill Prison because he has no passport or identity papers.

The man, who gave his name as “Walli Ullah”, said he is 21-years-old, from Afghanistan, and travelled to Ireland as a stowaway in a lorry.

He was discovered on the side of the M7 near Naas, Co Kildare, two weeks ago by a member of the public.

Last week, a spokesman for the Irish Road Haulage Association said hauliers travelling through the ferry port of Calais in northern France were coming under threat from “increasingly desperate” migrants.

“It’s likely he will be accepted into the refugee status application process, through the prison service, who are very humane people, and who have a regime in place for doing this sort of thing,” Mr Boyce.

“Eventually I imagine he will be accepted into the process and brought into some sort of assisted living situation.
