Berenika,

By 'Frontex-related authorities', I mean interception of migrants achieved by using assets specifically allocated to Frontex for the duration of the operation. For example, interceptions made by Italy's Operation Mare Nostrum would not count; however, interceptions made by offshore or coastal patrol vessels operated under the jurisdiction of the operational command of JO Hermes would.

Hope this helps,
Keegan Williams

Dear Keegan,

 

Thank you for your request.

 

I do not consider it as a public request for documents falling under
Regulation 1049/2001, but as a request for information. There is no
specific document containing all the requested information. Additionally
please be informed that data before 2012 were not recorded in a database
or a single document. Therefore I provide you with the data for the period
January 2012 – 2014.

 

Please find the answers to your questions in the attached document.

 

I hope you will find it helpful.

 

Kind regards
