The EU border police is preventing their answers to freedom of information requests from becoming public. This is thanks to their own, self-built FOI portal – which excludes people with disabilities, too. With our new tool, we’re stopping them in their tracks.
For two years, Frontex has been under investigation for its practices when dealing with information requests. Now, after our complaint, the European Ombudswoman has called on controversial EU border agency Frontex to answer FragDenStaat requests by e-mail. This could have an impact on other platforms, too.
EU border police Frontex wants to keep its cooperation with the so-called Libyan Coast Guard secret. Sea rescue organisation Sea-Watch, in cooperation with FragDenStaat, will challenge this in court.

In April, the EU Parliament told Frontex to drop their demand against us for the payment of € 10,520 in legal fees. The EU border force has chosen to disregard EU Members of Parliament - again.
EU border police Frontex has long-claimed search and rescue is a crucial part of their operations at sea. New research reveals how Frontex has in fact worked to render its own rescue capabilities useless - at the expense of innocent lives.
FragDenStaat grows – and is now getting a new unit for investigative research.
Frontex cannot be reformed. It must be abolished. Instead, we must build a system that guarantees justice and safety for all.
In its copyright lawsuit against us, the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment has lost against us in the second instance. The Cologne Higher Regional Court ruled that we were allowed to publish a controversial glyphosate report drafted by the Institute. However, the authority of Agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner may not accept this ruling either.
In an unprecedented move, the European Parliament has called on Frontex, the EU’s border police force, to withdraw its demand for legal fees - and to refrain from doing it again in the future.
