SKA on EUROSUR and Lampedusa

DW Europe :  GOALS OF EUROSUR BORDER SCHEME QUESTIONED | 11.10.

SKA: "Eurosur is to serve the battle against illegal migration. It's not at all for rescue operations, as is now being portrayed. We want help for maritime distress to be a goal, so that capacity and maritime rescue can be prepared for - and cooperation be more strongly oriented toward this - than the case is now."


 

SPIEGEL International :   EUROPE PLANS TO PROTECT SHORES FROM MASS MIGRATION | 11.10.

SKA: "It says rescue on it, but that isn't actually a part of Eurosur. In the future, we'll know how many refugees coming to Europe are in danger, because, with Eurosur, all member states need to inform Frontex about refugees in distress at sea. But they don't need to make more of an effort to save those people."
