Czech government to start checks on Slovak border due to migration rise

The leader and coalition candidate for Prime Minister Petr Filia, the Civic Democratic Party and Together and (SPOLU), and the leader and co-chair of the Mayors and Independents Party Vit Rakusan will be attending the final radio debate in preparation for the Czech Republic’s parliamentary elections.

Officials from the Czech government announced Monday that the Czech government would temporarily restore control at the Slovakian border to stem illegal migration.

In this year’s news conference Vit Rakusan, Interior Minister, stated that illegal migration from Syria rose by 1,200%.


“This year’s events were unprecedented. Rakusan said that 11,000 illegal migrants were detained by the police since 2022.

“This is transit migration. They were all aiming for Germany, the vast majority of them. He said that this caused nerves at the German border.

Rakusan said that initial checks would take 10 days.

The Central European EU countries have granted refugee status to more than 400,000 Ukrainians fleeing war. Refugee status has been granted by the Schengen region, which is borderless.


Rakusan said that Czech neighbors were informed of the decision.
