Question for written answer E-003084-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Marina Albiol Guzmán (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Use of EU funds for migration policy in Morocco
 Answer in writing 

As a result of the migration agreement signed by the EU and the Kingdom of Morocco in 2013, and the EU Trust Fund for Africa, the Moroccan authorities receive more than EUR 200 million in EU funding each year, earmarked for migration policies.

Morocco represses social and political opposition movements internally, and has illegally occupied the Sahrawi territory since 1976. It has built a completely militarised wall in the Sahrawi territory which separates the Moroccan-controlled territory from Polisario territory. The wall is more than 2 720 km long and consists of mine fields, different fences and bunkers. More than 100 000 soldiers from the Moroccan army are stationed there. The upkeep of the wall could cost as much as EUR 100 000 per day.

1. Could the Commission provide a breakdown of the funding earmarked for Morocco, indicating how it will be spent?

2. Does the Commission have a mechanism to ensure that the funding set aside for border control is not spent on the so-called ‘Wall of Shame’, which is illegal under international law?

3. What is its assessment of its policing and border-control agreements with an occupying power?
