Parliamentary questions
7 January 2014
E-000061-14
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Roger Helmer (EFD)

 Subject:  Issuing passports to citizens of non-EU countries
 Answer(s) 

The Commission will have seen press reports indicating that some Member States, and especially Bulgaria and Romania, have been issuing their national passports to citizens of non-EU countries including Macedonia, Moldova, Turkey, Serbia and Ukraine(1). It is reported that tens of thousands of such passports have been issued by Bulgaria alone.

Is the Commission aware of these allegations? Does it believe they are true? Does it agree with me that if so, these Member States are making a mockery of the EU’s free movement rules, and undermining any pretence of EU border controls? What action will the Commission take to address this problem? Does the Commission agree with me that existing Member States should be able to close their borders to immigrants from the countries implicated until the matter is investigated and resolved?
