Budapest, January 31 (MTI) – The second unit of Hungarian police officers helping Slovenia in halting illegal migration has returned to Hungary.
“The government is proud of the officers who have worked to public satisfaction and enhanced the reputation of the Hungarian police in Slovenia,” state secretary for law enforcement Laszlo Tasnadi said at a reception ceremony on Sunday.
The 52-strong unit has worked under Slovenian command to maintain public order, prevent crimes and protect the external border of the Schengen zone since December 28.
Slovenia asked for an international contribution to illegal migration control efforts at the end of last October.
Hungary was among the first nations to respond by offering to put police officers there between November 9 and January 31.
