Govt asks parliament to grant army limited police powers on border

Ljubljana, 22 October - The government has submitted to parliament a proposal to activate Article 37a the defence act which gives members of the Slovenian Armed forces certain police powers on the border. The proposal, which the government says is primarily needed because of the additional burdens placed on police by the epidemic, needs a two-thirds majority.
