Own Initiative Inquiry about the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex), and its internal complaints mechanism

The Ombudsman opened an inquiry on her own initiative into the European Border and Coast Guard Agency's (Frontex) Complaints Mechanism for those who believe their fundamental rights have been breached in the context of a Frontex operation.

The Ombudsman sent a series of questions to Frontex, relating to the effectiveness and transparency of the Complaints Mechanism, and the role of the 'fundamental rights officer'.
