Can the OLAF report on Frontex be published?

Question for written answer  E-001717/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Jean-Paul Garraud (ID)

For almost two years the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, Frontex, and its Executive Director, Fabrice Leggeri, have been facing multiple accusations from NGOs, the media and the Commission.

These attacks, together with the report by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), led Mr Leggeri to resign on 28 April.

This secret OLAF report, since it was not made public, set out a number of accusations, including a failure to follow procedures, a lack of loyalty to the European Union and mismanagement of the agency’s staff.

In addition, on the basis of allegations in some media of migrant pushbacks, an internal investigation was conducted in 2020. Its conclusions, presented on 1March 2021, did not implicate members of the European Agency.
