Nearly three and a half thousand migrants were transferred from yesterday afternoon to early Wednesday this morning in Slovenia by direct train to Dobov, with three compositions of the Croatian Railways brought by refugees from Eastern Slavonia, which is a new transit system that was agreed today police of two states.
The first such train in Dobov came yesterday afternoon with 1.100 Refugee, and during the night and morning two more.
Slovenian police have confirmed that communication with Croatian counterparts is much better than before and that the new system is agreed and functioning and whether it will continue with it on the following days will depend on the situation on the ground and will be discussed among other issues today a session of the National Security Council convened by Prime Minister Miro Cerar.
The new system of refugee migration from Croatia to Slovenia is much more humane than migrants who were soon brought close to the border by train and then walked three kilometers from Sutla to Dobo railway station and then left for another four hours to Brežica for registration, followed by Slovenian police on horses, and often had to spend the cold nights outdoors.
By negotiating the Croatian and Slovenian police, the procedure is now much faster and more acceptable for both sides. After leaving the train in the Age, migrants enter the heated space where they are offered a bridle and then enter the train of the Slovenian Railways, which takes them to Šentilj, where they are registered, waiting for you to move to Austria.
The new procedure seems to agree with the Slovenian police syndicate, whose members complain of exhaustion due to long-term work with migrants, and the extended working hours which, due to the refugee crisis, can last 17 or even 26 hours without interruption, and have also been threatened with strike earlier.
The Slovenian police, however, exclude the possibility of applying a new transit model for refugees to other railway crossings of the two countries because the situation is still very fluid and, according to some information, Austria is also preparing for restrictions on receiving migrants from Slovenia, which so far has not happened.
The possible "black scenarios" that would require sending more troops to the border with Croatia or even setting physical barriers will be decided at the National Security Council meeting in the afternoon, but no dramatic decisions are expected, especially because the first video conference of the authorized government representatives on the migrant "Balkan route", as agreed at the mini-conference in Brussels, will be held on Thursday, when the status with meeting the agreement will be clearer.
Meanwhile, Slovenia expects that the EU's financial support for its efforts with migrants will begin to increase and EU funds will be received by Slovenia's first police officers who, along with the equipment, promised Germany as a help to the Slovenian police at the border.
According to the data of the Slovenian police in the country 12 refugees and migrants entered the country in the last 89.789 days, and in Austria they were transferred to 63.715.
The Slovene police warns, however, that this is not about the most up-to-date and accurate information.
