NPM monitored the removal of three foreigners

As part of the implementation of the tasks and powers of the National Preventive Mechanism (NPM), the Ombudsman of the Republic of Slovenia (Ombudsman) monitored the removal of three foreigners from the Centre for Foreigners in Postojna to Jože Pučnik Airport in Ljubljana on 11 April 2020.

The foreigners had previously served a prison sentence, but the court also imposed a secondary sentence of expulsion from the country, as a result of which they were removed from our country. The removal of the foreigners was monitored by Ivan Šelih, Deputy Omudsman, and Robert Gačnik, spec., Ombudsman’s advisor.

To ensure external independent monitoring of police activities, including the formulation of recommendations, a report will be drawn up on the monitoring of these activities during the removal of foreigners and sent to the Ministry of the Interior for consideration.
