¿First Frontex Forced Repatriation Operation? (18 June Repatriation Near Malta) (News)

Malta Today reported that the forced repatriation operation involving 74 migrants that took place on 18 June was the first time that Frontex ever coordinated a forced repatriation operation at sea.

“Even though the migrants were intercepted by an Italian coast guard boat, the same migrants, that included women and children, were identified by a Frontex asset that followed the operation through.”

The operation, part of Nautilus IV, used a German helicopter, the Italian coast guard, and a Libyan patrol boat.
