ZAGREB, May 10, 2019 – “We will protect people who live in areas intersected by migrant routes,” the state secretary at the Ministry of the Interior, Žarko Katić, said in parliament on Friday while responding to MP Saša Đujić’s question as to how police intended to guarantee security to citizens in the mountainous Gorski Kotar region and the area of Rijeka, in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, where cases of migrants breaking into family homes have become frequent.
Do people have to hire security guards, Social Democrat Đujić asked during a parliamentary debate on a private protection bill.
Katić confirmed that the migrant pressure was the greatest in Karlovac, Primorje-Gorski Kotar and Lika-Senj counties, noting that additional police forces were being sent to those counties with state-of-the-art equipment.
“The problem does exist, we are aware of it and are dealing with it in the most appropriate way, we will protect people who live in areas intersected by migrant routes,” Katić said, adding that police work in the areas in question was hampered by the fact that those areas were sparsely populated.
