NEWS BRIEFS

Police prepare for protests

ACTIVISTS from the "aniPUTINaniBUSH"(neitherPUTINnorBUSH) group will hold a gathering with opportunity for debate and a video presentation during the Bush-Putin summit.

Spokesperson Štefan Szilva says the group only wants to express its opinions by employing freedom of speech and the right of public assembly.

However, he doesn't expect many people to attend the protest due to strict security, the TASR news service reported.

Although the activists have registered to use three of Bratislava's squares, they have decided to hold the demonstration in only one. They have not invited any foreign demonstrators.

The Interior Ministry press department spokesperson, Monika Kuhajdová, says that police are fully prepared for the summit and that the number of police in action will depend on any given situation.

People should expect queues at the borders and airports, since security checks on people, luggage and vehicles are being intensified.

The Interior Ministry has purchased special automotive security equipment, armaments and sappers' equipment for the summit.

Kuhajdová calls it "a long-term investment" because police will continue to use the equipment after the summit ends.
