ZAGREB, February 6, 2020 – The parliamentary Committee on Home Affairs and National Security on Thursday adopted a report on the work of the Council for the Civilian Oversight of Security and Intelligence Agencies in 2019 and the Council’s 2020 work programme, and decided to conduct direct oversight of the treatment of migrants by border police.
The Committee unanimously decided to conduct direct oversight of police work following complaints about the police treatment of migrants, Committee Chairman Ranko Ostojić (SDP) told the press after the Committee meeting.
He said that oversight would most likely include Committee members inspecting police work on the ground, after which the Committee would adopt conclusions.
As for the annual report on the work of the Council for the Civilian Oversight of Security and Intelligence Agencies, Ostojić expressed his satisfaction and said that none of the cases dealt with by the Council indicated any irregularities that would have required a special session of the Committee.
He said that the Council was not denied any information from the security and intelligence agencies and that their cooperation was good.
