Under the Schengen Evaluation Mechanism, established in October 2013, Schengen evaluations are carried out in Member States based on a multi-annual and an annual evaluation programme. Such visits can be announced or unannounced and are carried out by Commission-led teams with experts from Member States and Frontex.

An evaluation of the application of the Schengen rules in the field of external border management by Greece was carried out in November 2015. The Evaluation Report, which revealed serious deficiencies in the carrying out of external border control by Greece, was adopted by the Commission on 2 February 2016. Recommendations for remedial action were adopted by the Council on 12 February 2016.
As the Evaluation Report found serious deficiencies, the Commission adopted on 24 February 2016 an implementing decision setting out recommendations on specific measures to be taken by Greece. The recommendations seek to ensure that Greece applies all Schengen rules related to management of the external border.
On 12 March 2016, Greece presented its Action Plan to remedy the deficiencies identified in the evaluation report and subject to the Council recommendations. On 12 April 2016 the Commission presented its assessment of the adequacy of the Action Plan. On 29 April 2016, Greece presented its report on the implementation of the Action Plan.
In accordance with the Schengen Borders Code, the Commission must assess on the basis of a report by Greece to be presented within three months of the Council recommendations, whether the serious deficiencies still persist.
On 4 May 2016, the Commission proposed to the Council to adopt a Recommendation to prolong proportionate temporary controls at certain internal Schengen borders, namely in Germany, Austria, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, for a maximum period of six months.

The national border management system of the Hellenic Republic presently does not yet have the required operational and administrative capacities to manage external borders according to the standards of the Schengen Borders Code, although work is in progress to establish these capacities. In particular, some core functions, e.g. risk analysis, are presently not implemented in full and the approach to border management is fragmented. Not all the national capacities suitable for border surveillance (Army, Navy) are fully used by the Hellenic Republic.

Yeah, like they've thrown the whole world (NATO) and his friends into the whole equation!

Yet some (the racists) still seem to think this is a "Greek only" problem despite all the evidence against that being the case!

If by 'this' you mean the whole migration crisis. then the claim that anyone has said this is a 'Greek only' problem is just yet more made up fantasy nonsense detached from any actual reality. If by 'this' you mean the serious deficiencies by Greece, identified in the evaluation report on Greece, then the reality is that the EU itself has explicitly said that this is 'primarily the responsibility of Greece'. You do not like this reality so you just go on and on and on denying it and calling those who do not deny it 'the racists'. This is what you do, this is what you have always done here on this forum.

I see we have reached the stage of "reducto at Hitlerum" arguments where gig has introuduced the spectre of the Nazis. Hardly a logical Arguement but then gig is incapable of arguing rationally, certainly when it comes to any thing Greek, or for thst matter Turkish, where she demonstrates her own particular brand of racism.

The facts remsin the EU has foukd that Greece is seriously deficient in its obligations as defined in EU regulation EC 1053/2013 regarding Greece's msnagement of its external border ie with Non-EU member states.

She posited that there was a subtle difference between Greece's external border and the EU external border. No argument supported by evidence was introduced to support that contention, either in terms of the nature of the subtlty or the basis of it, nor how it affects the position.

Hardly suprising as there is no distinction, and where in any event under EU regulation EC2007/2004 as amended, including by EC 1053/2013 the responsibility for managing that section of the EU external border, primarily lies with Greece.

The latest documents circulated by the EU in fact further identify some of the problems, which appear to me to be purely organisational on the part of Greece in how it utilises the navy, coast guard, etc, without coordination. As i understsnd it That is totally outside he remit of the EU or any body like Frontex but down to Greece and Greececalone.

The fact remsins undeniable, that the EU has found Greece was seriously deficient in how it was performing its obligations under the Schengen Rules To manage the external border, but due to her delusions which possibly are a sign of Schizophrenia, as defined in either DSM 4 or DSM 5, she is in complete denial of that reality. According to her everyone but Greece is to blame, in particular FRONTEX though as defined in EC 2007/2004 as amended none of the areas of deficiency lie with in the legally remit of FRONTEX, who by operation of law are therfore excluded from roles in those areas.

Sad, and pathetic, that is what gIG has become, wither delusions and incoherent invented arguement that do not reflect the reality of the position.

Sad and pathetic is the relentless pursuit by what can only be racist-driven hatred to try and turn the Turkish-created migrant crisis into a "Greek" "deficiency"-problem!

- This despite the EU constantly recognising otherwise!

All know, Greece has been exemplary in her reaction - the deficiencies are the lack of preparation by the EU external borders management team, situated around the geographical region identified as Greece.

Greece is NOT the only member state of the EU external borders management team.

The report has identified some of the rest of the management team .... finally!

Now, deal with your racism, please!

In accordance with Council Regulation (EU) No 1053/20131 and the annual evaluation programme for 2015 , an unannounced on-site visit was carried out from 10 to 13 November 2015 to evaluate the implementation of the Schengen acquis in the field of the management of the external border by the Hellenic Republic at its land border (Orestiada, Fylakio, Kastanies, Nea Vyssa) and sea border (Chios and Samos Islands) with Turkey.

On 2 February 2016 the Commission adopted an implementing decision establishing a report of the evaluation of the Hellenic Republic on the implementation of the Schengen acquis in the field of the management of the external border concluding that there are serious deficiencies in the carrying out of external border control that must be overcome and dealt with by the Hellenic authorities. These serious deficiencies represent, as far as the carrying out of external border control is concerned, a situation where the obligations referred to in Article 16(1) and (4) of Regulation (EU) No 1053/2013 have not been met.


The national border management system of the Hellenic Republic presently does not yet have the required operational and administrative capacities to manage external borders according to the standards of the Schengen Borders Code, although work is in progress to establish these capacities.

Mever mind last November, and 'deficiencies' (tame!!!!) ..... here's what's happening now ....

Migration crisis: Italians protest over Austria border fence plan

A demonstration against a plan to restrict access through the Brenner Pass between Italy and Austria has turned violent, with Italian police firing teargas at hundreds of protesters throwing stones and firecrackers.

Austria has said it plans to erect a fence at the Alpine crossing it shares with Italy to “channel” people. Part of Europe’s borderless Schengen zone, Brenner is one of the routes that migrants use as they head towards wealthy northern Europe.

In Berlin, far-right protesters joined a march demanding that Merkel step down for allowing more than a million migrants from the Middle East into Germany since last year. They gathered outside Berlin’s central railway station waving German flags and holding up posters reading “Islamists not welcome” and “Wir sind das Volk” (“We are the people”), a slogan coined by the protesters who ended communist rule in East Germany, adopted last year by the anti-Islam Pegida movement.

The Italian prime minister, Matteo Renzi, said after talks with Merkel on Thursday that Italy and Germany were utterly opposed to Austria’s plan to build a fence on the Italian border.

Of course, according to stud and erol, all this is the fault of a 'deficient' Greece! :roll:

Blooming racists!
