Police at Brussels Zaventem airport threatens strike if security measures don't improve. (HLN).[GoogleTranslated]
Police Brussels Airport Zaventem will no longer work at the airport Wednesday if the security measures do not significantly improve. For example, there should be more staff be deployed for security.
Belgian news agency Belga reported Sunday that this was confirmed by a spokesman of the police union in question that there will be a strike if demands are not met. The union demanded action even before the bloody attacks last Tuesday in the departure hall.
The Belgian Ministry of the Interior was told Friday March 18 it would discontinue airport police if there was no action. "The sad events of (Tuesday) March 22 prove that our concerns are justified," said Alain Peeters from the police union NSPV Sunday.
We demand more security and additional staff," says Alain Peeters, national secretary ad interim of the National Syndicate of Police and Security Personnel (NSPV). Today, discussions took place between the NSPV and the head of the government at the airport. "At the Brussels Airport management, we have expressed our concerns.
Specifically, we ask an audit of all travelers before they enter the temporary infrastructure, Which will probably be 'build' in the form of a tent. Secondly, we demand that no cars may appear in a radius of at least 100 meters to the temporary terminal of actual entrance of the airport. "The measures must be taken before the airport reopens, says the union. The airport authorities want 'Zaventem' to reopen again on Wednesday. Hmmmm......And no this is not an Onion piece.
