Soldiers may help police on border even without police powers

Interion Minister Aleš Hojs told the press that the government plans to deploy soldiers if needed despite the fact that it was unable to muster the two-thirds majority in parliament to grant soldiers limited police powers to patrol the border. It plans to use a different legislative provision that allows a more limited form of deployment.

This provision, allows soldiers to cooperate with the police in the “broader protection of the state border”, albeit without police powers.
