25/02/2016 – LJUBLJANA, Slovenia – Army given police powers
The Slovenian parliament voted on Monday to confer on the army “exceptional police powers”. The move, which is most often associated with the declaration of martial law will allow troops to patrol the border and to place illegal migrants when caught under arrest.
The bestowment of powers is initially for three months, and will allow soldiers to restrict movement and to manage groups and masses, reports Slovenske Novice.
