LIBE Votes to Refer Frontex Sea Border Rules to JURI

At its meeting on 10 May, the LIBE committee voted to send a request to the JURI committee regarding the Council Decision pertaining to the procedures to be applied during Frontex surveillance and interdiction operations at sea.  The request asks the JURI committee to refer the Council Decision to the European Court of Justice on the procedural ground that the Council Decision should not have been dealt with as a comitology measure but instead should be grounded on a legal basis.

I have not yet been able to find a copy of the LIBE committee’s letter to JURI, but a video of the LIBE committee meeting can be found on the EP Multimedia Library here or here.  The vote and the brief discussion occurs at approximately 16:44 in the video.
