New fence is being erected on Slovenia’s southern border, according to the newspaper Delo. As part of a EUR 4.5 million deal won by the Serbian company Legi SGS last year, 40 kilometres of fence will be put up in the municipalities of Kočevje and Kostel, and in the western Primorska region.
The government does not reveal the locations where the new fence will be set up, but according to Delo, 10 kilometres of fence will be erected in the municipalities of Kočevje and Kostel. Fencing has also been erected in southern Primorska. Croatia’s local newspaper Glas Istre reported that the Slovenian authorities had put up a metal gate in the middle of Mlini in Istria.
