Police given stop and search rights

POLICE Corps President Anton Kulich said officers have the right to stop and search persons or vehicles if they are in an area where they can threaten the presidents' security.

They can also search buildings.

"If it is necessary for state security, keeping public order and protecting lives, health and citizens' property, police officers are allowed to deny entry or stay at a certain place to anybody. The police force is also authorized to ask citizens to remain at a given place for a certain time."

There are more than 5,000 policemen ensuring the smooth running of the summit meeting.

Hviezdoslavovo square can be entered and left on foot from Straková and Rybné námestie streets.

Cars can come through Rigeleho street. Citizens are asked to look after their identification cards and carry them everywhere they go.

If anyone sees anything suspicious or has questions, then he or she should turn to the police.
