First half-year report of the Independent Monitoring Mechanism


(Independent) Monitoring Mechanism mitigates original findings on pushbacks

One week after a working version of the 1st semi-annual report of the Independent Monitoring Mechanism of the Conduct of Police Officers of the Ministry of the Interior in the Field of Illegal Migration and International Protection was published at the website of the Croatian Public Health Institute on December 3rd and disappeared just a day later, the final version was released on Human Rights Day, December 10th.
The working version stated that "the police carry out illegal deterrence (pushbacks) and do not record deterrence allowed under Article 13 of the Schengen Borders Code." 
In the final version, however, "the police carry out permissible deterrence under Article 13 of the Schengen Borders Code, although they do not record them, and in mine suspected areas, in isolated cases, they also allow illicit deterrence."
To summarize: In the first week of December, pushbacks were carried out, and in the second week they were carried out only in mine suspected areas and in isolated cases. Indeed, great progress in such a short time.
We hope that the implementers of the (Independent) Monitoring Mechanism will be able to explain this difference.
