At the end of September 2021, the Budget Control Committee of the European Parliament recommended granting Frontext discharge for its 2019 budget but asked for part of the budget to be frozen. Looking at a number of outstanding issues, the Committee asked to freeze part of the 2022 Frontex budget and to make it available once the agency has fulfilled a number of specific conditions, such as the recruitment of 20 fundamental rights monitors and three deputy executive directors. Also on the Committee’s list: setting up a mechanism for reporting serious incidents at the EU’s external borders and setting up a functioning fundamental rights monitoring system.
