Frontex to Post Additional 600 Staff Across Greek Borders

44-1--19-thumb-large1-thumb-largeFrontex, the European Union’s border protection agency, on Monday called for the deployment of 775 additional to deal with the migrant influx on Europe’s external frontier.
The additional staff will join the Frontex Joint Operations Poseidon and Triton, and their main task will be the documenting of refugees and migrants entering Europe and monitoring land and sea borders.
According to EU sources, an estimated 600 staff will be posted across Greece’s entry points. They will help register and fingerprint new arrivals and start the process of relocating asylum seekers in other EU states.
In addition, the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), an EU agency, called for 374 additional experts to be deployed in Greece and Italy to support asylum procedures in the two countries.
The experts will conduct processing activities, support in the implementation of relocation measures, help with the registration process and examine documents to detect possible fraud.
Following the additional staff, EU will soon launch a refugee relocation program in Greece and Italy.
Top EU officials met with Turkey’s President Recept Tayyip Erdogan in Brussels to discuss a European Commission plan to contain migration flows by having Turkish coast guard patrols collaborate with the Hellenic Coast Guard patrols in the eastern Aegean.
