European Commission Slams Greece Over Border Controls
A new report from from the E.U.’s executive body is clear: Greece is letting the bloc down. As part of the Schengen accord that normally allows passport-free travel throughout much of Europe, Greece is required to keep an adequate handle on who’s coming and going across its external borders. The draft report alleges that Greece isn’t doing enough to fingerprint, identify and record everyone who enters the country — and thus the rest of the E.U. — and failure to shape up could mean more internal border controls are thrown up for refugees.
