Danish patrol boat incident
Dear European Border and Coast Guard Agency,
On 6 July 2020, Frontex Director Fabrice Leggeri stated before the European Parliament’s LIBE Committee: "There was clearly apparently a misunderstanding of the operational plan."
This statement was made in reference to the incident involving a Danish patrol boat which reportedly refused to follow an order to push back migrants at sea.
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting the following documents:
All documents that served as a basis for obtaining the aforementioned conclusion, as expressed by Mr Leggeri. This includes, but is not limited to:
- All correspondence – including all attachments – regarding, mentioning or discussing the Danish patrol incident, and/or Frontex’s role in this incident;
- All relevant operational plans, including all annexes;
- All reports, evaluations, studies and analysis of any kind conducted by Frontex regarding or in response to the Danish patrol boat incident, and/or Frontex’s role in this incident;
- A list of all meetings held where the incident and/or Frontex’s role in this incident were discussed or mentioned, as well as all minutes of these meetings.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any clarification in regards to any aspect of my request.
Please also note that, in line with the European Ombudsman's decision in case 104/2020/EWM, I hereby express my wish to receive all responses and documents related to this request via this e-mail address only and not through the Frontex portal. I will not accept a notification to this e-mail address, but only the actual responses.
Thank you in advance.
