New Frontex Operation in Serbia
On 16 June 2021, Frontex launched a new operation in Serbia. 44 standing corps officers from 14 countries helped detect criminal activities:
- Trafficking in human beings;
- Document fraud;
- Smuggling of stolen vehicles, illegal drugs, weapons, and excise goods;
- Potential terrorist threats.
“Joint Operation Serbia ‒ Land 2021” is taking place at Serbia’s border to Bulgaria in order to counter the increasing number of illegal border crossings observed in recent years.
