Poland will reinstate controls
at its borders with neighbouring EU states during Euro 2012, the Interior Ministry said in a statement
The ministry said the controls should not obstruct fluent
travel and would be conducted on selected days from June 4 to
July 1 at chosen border crossings with Germany, the Czech
Republic, Slovakia and Lithuania.
Border control staff would have access to databases and
equipment to verify documents and test for drugs.
Poland, an European Union member since 2004, is part of the
EU's border-free Schengen zone.
"In case a person is identified who may pose a threat to
security or public order, a decision will be issued to deny this
person's entrance to the territory of Poland," the statement
Poland, co-host of the June 8-July 1 tournament with
Ukraine, is expected to attract more than 800,000 visitors to
the cities of Warsaw, Gdansk, Wroclaw and Poznan where matches
will be held, according to a government-funded report.
