This afternoon, the Committee of Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) of the European Parliament will approve the creation of a new European Border and Coast Guard (EBCG) to replace Frontex.

No independent mechanisms are foreseen to hold the agency accountable in case of human rights violations.
