Police officers have announced they are preparing a leafleting action targeting tourists arriving to the country’s ports and airports. The officers are protesting the far going cuts, which have left them with lower salaries, fewer colleagues and higher work pressure. Through the action, tourists will be made aware of the situation. Authorities as well as hospitality and catering association AHRESP have called on the police unions to refrain from printing the leaflets, which allegedly will tell tourists in five languages that the government is putting the internal security of the country at risk.
