The police in Csongrad announced on Tuesday that the two Serbian citizens were detained yesterday after midnight near Szeged for crossing the border illegally, and helping 19 migrants do the same.
The Greeks were detained the same morning near the settlement of Reska near the border with Serbia while transporting nine Syrians in two vehicles. The Syrians "could not prove they were in Hungary legally," a statement said.
The four suspects have been charged with illegal human trafficking, while all the migrants discovered during the police searches have submitted asylum requests and have been turned over to the immigration service, the police said.
