  • Case: 1328/2017/EIS
    Opened on 02 Aug 2017 - Decision on 23 Nov 2017
  • Institution(s) concerned: European Agency for the Management of Operational Cooperation at the External Borders

The case concerned the refusal by the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) to grant full public access to a document concerning the vessels used in the Poseidon and Triton operations on border control and surveillance. Frontex refused to grant access to the document on the grounds that doing so would undermine public security.

The Ombudsman inquired into the issue and found that Frontex’s position was justified, so she closed the case with a finding of no maladministration.
