President Borut Pahor and the defence and interior ministers, Matej Tonin and Aleš Hojs again call for army to be given police powers

President Borut Pahor and the defence and interior ministers, Matej Tonin and Aleš Hojs, visited the southern border area along the Kolpa river to call for the military to be given limited police powers.

They argued that boosted joint border patrols were supported by the army and police, and the locals in the area. In line with the estimates available to the interior minister, activation of article 37.a of the defence act would increase the number of soldiers along the border from the current 140 to around 500.
