The police officers made no serious mistake in trying to prevent two Moroccans expected to be deported from escaping.

The incident took place at Schwechat airport, close to Vienna, in mid-July. The two Moroccans fled the airport, resulting in suspension of flights for several minutes. They were caught shortly afterwards.

“After the inspection carried out by respective Police Corps department no serious mistakes were made though this attempt had occurred,” said Ladislav Csémi, head of the Bureau of Border and Alien Police, in a video published on Facebook.

Austrian police officers also carried out an inspection leading to the same results. This was confirmed at their joint meeting in Vienna on July 20, he added.

The Slovak and Austrian police, however, want to adopt measures to prevent similar cases in the future.

“We will increase the number of police officers present during boarding of planes, and we will also set the exact rules for the access of individual foreigners to the respective planes,” Csémi said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The police are also ready to use special handcuffs meeting security rules at the airport that will be easy to release during the flight if necessary.

“Our basic rule is to use the mildest means to achieve our goals,” Csémi said, as quoted by TASR. “We, however, do care about the safety of flights, passengers and our police officers.”
