“You stood in the first line, being the first point of contact for travellers entering the country and you did it with dedication and high professionalism, playing a crucial role in contributing to the effort to control the disease, promoting safer communities, and fighting criminals who might have tried to take advantage of the outbreak. Happy Anniversary, dear Border Police officers and thank you once again for the great work you are doing!”, Head of EUBAM said during his special word for congratulation for the Moldovan Border Police officers.
