Ioannis Lagos is a convicted nazi serving jail sentence in Greece. He is also a Member of the European Parliament. We want to know what Lagos has been using Parliament funds for, but the Parliament refuses to disclose this in order to “protect his data”. So we are taking them to court.
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.
756 German officers, 11 Italian aircrafts, 62 Bulgarian patrol cars or 101 Austrian deportation officials: We publish all resources European countries make available to Frontex.
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.
Frontex cannot be reformed. It must be abolished. Instead, we must build a system that guarantees justice and safety for all.
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.
The EU border police, currently under multiple investigations, including for human rights violations, had initially claimed €23,700 – twice as much as what the court considers is justified.
