Deployment of German police in Saudi-Arabia

Germany has deployed some of its police to Saudi-Arabia to train Saudi-Arabian police in border control measures. The police was deployed without parliamentary consent and merely on the basis of an executive order. Moreover, the deployment is linked to a State contract between Saudi-Arabia and the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Agency (EADS) with the objective to build a 9000 km high-tech border fence in the Saudi-Arabian desert. In doing so, the German police may have aided the Saudi Arabian police in “more effectively” fighting the opposition forces during the democratic spring in the Arab region.
