,If we meet people participating in the convoy, we contact them and inform them. Drivers receive a leaflet explaining what they can and cannot do,
Police will intervene only when absolutely necessary. ,First, we act administratively. It is only as a last resort and in consultation with the prosecution we move to the judicial stage.”
For now, the situation on the Franco-Belgian border is calm. It is not clear whether there will be any major disruption to the convoy. ,We are constantly monitoring the situation and are in close consultation with France. At present, individual vehicles cross the border but not in convoys. Everything is looking calm at the moment and we expect it to remain that way.”Added Federal Police.
