Summary/Abstract: During the first half of 2010, many Internet sites in the Czech Republic and abroad published a number of alarming articles about the platform, called the European Gendarmerie Force (EUROGENDFOR, EGF). Their authors refer to this unit as the basis for a new "Holy Alliance", when the gendarmerie from one member state will be going to suppress unrests in another member state – if the local task forces refuse to do so. This paper is trying to correct such speculations and summarizes available information about the respective unit.
