1 018 drift-backs in the Aegean Sea

Question for written answer  E-002668/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Erik Marquardt (Verts/ALE)

Forensic Architecture recently revealed that the Hellenic Coast Guard, sometimes with the assistance of Frontex, has carried out 1 018 ‘drift-backs’ in the Aegean Sea[1]. Despite the evidence piling up, the Commission has been disproportionately silent and vague in its response to the situation at the Greek borders, creating the impression of attempting to cover for the Greek authorities rather than acting as guardian of the Treaties.
