Letter to Mr. Melchior Wathelet, State Secretary in charge of Migration and Asylum Policy for JHA Co

09/11/2010 – The forthcoming Justice and Home Affairs Council meeting on 8 and 9 November is expected to discuss ‚migration flows and border control at the EU’s eastern and south-eastern borders‛. This discussion is timely given the recent deployment by Frontex of a Rapid Border Intervention Team (RABIT) to the Greek-Turkish border and the continuing hardship faced by asylum-seekers and irregular migrants in Greece, which is also a consequence of the application of the Dublin Regulation.
