BERLIN, June 3. /TASS/. A group of German police will participate in maintaining security at the national squad’s matches at the European Football Cup finals in France, the spokesman for the German police unit responsible for operations at sports events, Jan Schabacker, told the media on Friday.
Eight German police will be present at all of Germany’s matches to keep an eye on particularly rowdy fans and help settle potential problems. It is not ruled out that Germany will delegate more police to the match with Poland, due in Paris on June 16. Analysts do not rule out scuffles between fans.
A specialist on fan issues, Gunter Pilz, has warned that the match with Poland was fraught with special risks for security.
As Bouches du Rhone police prefect Laurent Nunez said earlier, Russian police would participate in maintaining law and order in Marseilles at the Russian-England encounter. British law enforcers have arrived in France, too. They will help their French counterparts "maintain order and spot and put under control football fans who pose potential risks."
France will host European Football Cup finals on June 10 - July 10. France’ anti-hooliganism department has analyzed the forthcoming games and identified a group of "high risk matches." The England-Russia clash in Marseilles due June 11 is on the list.
