a. The effect on the mandate and on Frontex activities of the amendment to Section 71/A of Act LXXX of 2007 on Asylum and newly added Section 5 (1a) of Act LXXXIX of 2007 on State Borders, entered into force on 5 July 2016, that legalise the push-back of third country nationals without the right to stay in Hungary within 8 kilometres of the Serbian-Hungarian border to the external side of the border fence without the right to lodge an asylum application;
b. The effect on the mandate and on Frontex activities of the insertion of Section 80/J of Act LXXX of 2007 on Asylum, entered into force on 28 March 2017, prescribing that asylum applications can only be lodged inside the transit zones and that any third country national staying illegally anywhere on the territory of Hungary is pushed back to the external side of the border fence at the closest gate to their apprehension.
4. Reports, or if they cannot be made public, their exact number, on push-backs (see description in 3a. and b.) witnessed by Frontex personnel deployed at the Hungarian-Serbian border.

Dear Mr Lederer,

 

Thank you for your email and your interest in Frontex activities.

 

We would like to inform you that pursuant to Article 2(1) of Regulation
(EC) No 1049/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May
2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and
Commission documents, the right of access to documents is granted to a
citizen of the Union, and any natural or legal person residing or having
its registered office in a Member State.

 

To confirm that you are invested in the right of access to the documents
requested, it is necessary to provide an ID card/passport/residence permit
in the EU/registration in an EU Member State (legal persons). You may
however refuse to provide such document containing personal data; in that
case, your request is not going to be processed.

 

After receiving the above mentioned documents, we will be able to start
processing your request and will get back to you within 15 working days.

 

Please be informed of the following:

-          The person responsible for controlling the personal data (Data
controller) is the Head of Legal Affairs Unit

-          The personal data is collected for the exclusive purpose of
assessing the nationality of the applicant

-          The recipients of the personal data are the 3 Frontex Staff
members (Senior Legal Officer, Junior Lawyer and Legal Assistant) handling
requests for public access for documents

-          The personal data collected (that is, the document sent to the
PAD mailbox) will be deleted as soon as the access for the request
document(s) is granted or refused.  In Frontex, this procedure takes no
longer than 15 or 30 working days depending on the number/size of the
requested documents. During the processing of your data, you have a right
to access your data and rectify them if needed. You have a right to have
recourse to the European Data Protection Supervisor.

 

Thank you very much for your understanding.

Dear Mr Lederer,

 

While my colleagues are processing your request under the relevant PAD
procedures, I have noticed that the last question can be handled by us, as
it is rather a request for information than access to documents. We would
like to let you know that currently Frontex deploys 20 officers on the
Hungarian-Serbian border.

 

Kind regards,
