Migration and asylum lawyers Lisa Komp and Flip Schüller are the first one to file a lawsuit against Frontex, for violating fundamental rights of a Syrian family. In October 2016 this Syrian family was returned from Greece to Turkey on a flight operated by Frontex and Greece.The family was denied the right to have their asylum claim processed in Greece, and their young children aged 2, 5 and 7 were treated in a humiliating way during the flight. After complaints, Frontex refused to analyse its own responsibility for the unlawful return of the family.Lisa-Marie Komp and Flip Schüller have lodged the first legal action against Frontex for damages on behalf of the family against Frontex at the European Court of Justice in Luxemburg.
In a 30-minute interview, Tineke Strik (Member of European Parliament for the Greens), will discuss the case and its perceived impact with the two lawyers
