Budapest, October 12 (MTI) – The government plans to equip military police with electroshock weapons as part of legal amendments affecting the army, the daily Magyar Nemzet said on Wednesday.

The draft proposal on the Hungarian armed forces and special measures to be introduced were recently posted on the government website and are scheduled to be debated in parliament this autumn.

The amendments are needed to improve the efficacy of tasks connected with migration, terrorism and international military undertakings, the justification of the text showed.

The military police centre, whose staff are planned to be equipped with electroshock weapons in addition to firearms, is involved in protecting Hungary’s southern borders, the paper said.
