The LIBE Working Group on Frontex Scrutiny, chaired by Roberta Metsola (EPP, MT), has finished a 4 month fact-finding investigation regarding alleged violations of fundamental rights in which the Agency was involved, was aware of and/or did not act, internal management, procedures for reporting, and the handling of complaints. The report with conclusions and recommendations, was drafted by Tineke STRIK (Greens, NL) and was discussed in the Civil Liberties Committee on 15 July 2021.
