The federal government is planning measures at legislative level to make operations in the federal asylum centers safer. Former federal judge Niklaus Oberholzer (70) recommended in autumn 2021 to regulate more precisely who may apply disciplinary measures and on what basis.

The Federal Council now wants to meet this demand by amending the Asylum Act, as it announced on Wednesday at the opening of the consultation. Among other things, it should now be explicitly regulated in which areas the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) can use police coercion or take police measures to ensure security and order and how the competences in the security area can be transferred to security service providers.
