‘No evidence’ of migrant pushbacks: EU border agency chief Leggeri

The EU’s border and coast guard agency, known as Frontex, has a budget of over €540 million for 2021. It’s “the most important agency in the European Union”, according to the European Commissioner for Home Affairs. But Frontex and its Executive Director Fabrice Leggeri are currently under fire over allegations its officers participated in illegal “pushbacks” of asylum seekers. Speaking to FRANCE 24, Leggeri insists there is “no evidence” of such action.
