Metsola’s law on EU borders has been approved

The Metsola Report, which establishes a new law to better protect the external borders of the EU, has been approved by the Committee for Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs. This was after weeks of negotiations with different political groups, as well as stakeholders in the sector, both in Malta as well as the rest of Europe.

In the name of the European Parliament, MEP Roberta Metsola will be leading the negotiations about this law with Governments of EU member states, which is expected to be formally approved prior to the Parliamentary elections in May.

The new law will introduce 10,000 new security guards at the borders and coastlines who will have the power to fight against crime between borders and address individuals who are not eligible to enter the EU.

The Agency will also introduce offices in member states such as Malta, which will make it easier for the Agency to work with the respective member states. In the name of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola will now start negotiations with the Council about this law.
