Austria has taken 24 migrants and refugees from camps in Slovenia for the last 6.675-hour, and currently there are about five thousand people waiting for transit to the north today, the Slovenian police confirmed on Friday morning, but Slovenia claims that the media are still preparing "These days" introduce more stringent measures of refugee control at its border with Croatia.
According to Slovenian police sources, the daily inflow of migrants coming from Croatia to Slovenia is decreasing recently, and cooperation between the two police and their communication on migration is good. From last night to 4 hours in Dobov, in agreement with the Croatian police, 3825 migrants arrived at transit centers, and two more train tickets with just over 2200 refugees are expected until noon, police department Novo Mesto announced.
Last night, the extraordinary session of the Slovene parliament on the refugee crisis demanded by the conservative opposition was completed without special conclusions, but the debate showed that Slovenia changed its current "open door" policy and that in the coming days it could set up physical barriers at its Schengen border to Croatia, Slovenian media say today.
Stronger measures of control at the southern border and a reduction in the daily inflow of migrants have suggested in their performances President Borut Pahor asking for a "turnaround" at the border with Croatia and the head of the right opposition Janez Jansa, who refers to the situation of refugees as chaotic and uncontrolled.
On the other hand, Prime Minister Miro Cerar has denied opposition accusations late for events and is responsible for "massive illegal migration", "chaos" at the border with Croatia, and that the government does not control the situation, so Slovenia turns into "pocket" with thousands of migrants, including Islamic extremists. Cerar, however, said that his appearance in front of MPs was being interpreted by today's Ljubljana "Delo", he actually said that his actions in the migrant crisis will be adapted to the real situation and that "in the coming days a fence at the border with Croatia could be set up to protect the police and other forces ".
In support of the estimates that Slovenia will go into bigger restrictions on receiving migrants, it is said and information announced on Thursday by Slovenian TV, according to which 125 kilometers of wire fences for the defense of the "Schengen" border have been introduced in the country.
The Cerar government has bought a wire at the 12 Euro per meter, and in its setting up in some sectors of the border, the army will also help protect the wire from possible damage that could cause migrants to want to cross over the green border, Slovenian TV reported.
In support of the Thatcher's intention to prepare the Cerar government for "all situations", including the fact that Germany and Austria completely close their borders, which is for now no confirmation, speaks also the afternoon meeting of the Slovenian Prime Minister with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in Lendava.
Cerar at the beginning of the migration crisis in principle rejected any idea of setting a barbed wire at the border, refusing "wall politics in Europe," but also stressed the importance of the Slovenian Schengen border to Croatia, expecting the Schengen territory to send to the Slovenian police assistance from around the 400 police officer within a week, which has not happened so far, so only 50 arrived.
On the other hand, Orban has recently stated that it is necessary to defend the Schengen area from the migrant wave, adding that if it is scheduled to defend the southern Schengen border in Greece, it must now be defended in the north, with Hungary and Slovenia in the first place.
Slovenian media today very pessimisticly assess the possibility of a comprehensive solution to the migration crisis at EU level and announce that there will still be solo actions to protect their own borders before the migrant wave.
Thus, the "Evening" seaweed in the commentary states that the EU's migration policy is "a major disaster" and that "it is clear that Germany, and then Austria," will soon close their border for migrants.
This will only lead to a "real-life refugee crisis," quoting the newspaper, recalling Germany's leading role in its crisis with its open door policy for Middle East refugees and German Chancellor Angela Merkel's open door policy.
Previous attempts to relocate refugees from Greece and Italy, and the introduction of binding quotas in reality have proved to be a "bad joke", the Marine Journal quoted.
The Ljubljana weekly "Mladina", traditionally turned to the younger reader of leftist affiliation, in its new issue in the commentary warns of the growing wave of nationalism and the various phobias that are growing with the continuation of the refugee crisis, which are fueled by some parties and even public media.
In the new nationalistic hysteria, all the Slovene national TV service is also participating, and the nationalist Zmag Jelinčič, who was supposed to have been forgotten by Slovenes, said "Mladina" in his talk about the refugee problem.
"Have not we in Yugoslavia ever seen where all this irresponsible behavior of the national media is leading," points out Ljubljanska "Mladina", recalling the media support that had a nationalist policy that had caused the war in the space of that state before 25 years ago.
