Border cops get cars

Miroslav Samek, the head of the national border police department, said a 117-member anti-illegal migration unit will be formed in the first quarter of 2002.

The unit will be focused on eliminating smuggler groups, which Samek said remained one of the country's biggest problems.

The unit received six new cars valued at 200,000 Deutsche marks from the German embassy's chargé d'affaires Jürgen Pfeifer December 14.

Samek added that the Germans would donate a further 300,000 marks worth of computers at the beginning of next year.
