Commission may blacklist people-smugglers

[ November 23, 2021   //   ]

The European Commission says it could blacklist transport operators that are found to be involved in people smuggling as part of its response to the situation on its border with Belarus. It says that recent events there could not have taken place without the knowing or unknowing contribution of certain operators. Measures could include limitation of operations in the EUmarket, suspension of licenses or authorisations, suspension of the right to refuel or carry out maintenance within the EU, and the prohibition to transit or fly over the EU, make technical stops or call into EU ports.
