oday, MEPs are investigating whether the European border protection agency Frontex was involved in illegal pushbacks of refugees in the Aegean Sea – and whether it had known about it. This was in response to revelations by non-governmental organisations, human rights advocates and media such as “Der Spiegel”, which together with the media organisations “Lighthouse Reports”, “Bellingcat” and the ARD magazine “Report Mainz” had revealed that Frontex was involved in illegal pushbacks in the Aegean and had even made itself an accomplice in human rights violations.
