Draft Resolution on Frontex Fact-Finding Investigation
On 26 October 2023, the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs of the European Parliament (LIBE) adopted a draft resolution, wrapping up the fact-finding investigation by the Working Group on Frontex Scrutiny (→ eucrim 3/2021, 148-149). In summary, the resolution calls for the agency to scale down operations in Member States where there are allegations of lack of respect for EU values; there are severe concerns over the situation in Greece, Lithuania, and Hungary. The MEPs acknowledge the steps taken by the agency to introduce managerial changes but call for further actions to ensure the transparency of and respect for EU principles. In order to finally adapt the draft resolution, it will be tabled for a discussion and vote by the full House in a future plenary session.
