Malmström's EU Debut

Sweden’s new EU commissioner Cecilia Malmström presented her first proposal Wednesday, regarding the border agency Frontex, which has suffered from a lack of personnel, patrol boats and helicopters.

 She tells Swedish Radio News that member states have neglected to keep their promises to provide equipment and personnel. While the new proposal would compel member countries to supply materials, it doesn’t include another frequent suggestion, that the border agency share more information with local police and prosecutors.
