Air Security Issues in Hearing

CK - Washington.   The Federal Diet, Bundestag, in Berlin published a note today about a hearing of the Committee for the Interior on air security issues. The Executive under Chancellor Schröder had presented draft legislation 15/2361. The committee heard various expert witnesses detail the need for, and effect of, measures to protect air traffic against hijacking, sabotage and other dangerous interventions, including the use of military force in the event that the police authorities should be unable to assist. A competing bill submitted by the opposition would amend the Constitution in articles 35 and 87, with .the objective of more effectively combatting terrorism. The note entitled Notwendigkeit einer Grundgesetzšnderung unter Experten kontrovers diskutiert, Experts Discuss Controversively Need for Constitutional Amendment, contains summaries of the witnesses' statements.
