En intern EU-rapport stiller Angela Merkel i forlegenhed: Visumfrihed for tyrkere vil øge terrorrisikoen. Det er som at lagre benzin ved siden af ild, siger den tidligere sikkerhedschef i Storbritannien, Richard Dearlove.
Foreign terrorists and organised criminals are “expected” to seek Turkish passports to reach continental Europe “as soon as” the visa waiver program comes into force, a European Commission report said.
The disclosure came as Sir Richard Dearlove, the former head of MI6, warned that the decision to give Turkey visa-free travel is “perverse” and compared it to “storing gasoline next to the fire”.
Sir Richard also said that the EU will face a “populist uprising” if it fails to control migration.
Visumfriheden vil gøre det mulig for kriminelle og terrorister at tage sig til Europa på tyrkisk pas. Den mulighed vil de nog vide at benytte sig af. Nu er EU-ledelsen og Merkel advaret. Vil de alligevel vove pelsen?
However, the European Commission report acknowledges the “increased mobility into the Schengen area of criminals and terrorists who are citizens of Turkey, or who are foreigners based in Turkey.”
IS har fået bygge sig op i Tyrkiet over mange år. Hvis de nu kan besøge Europa visumfrit, vil Tyrkiet fungere som et brohoved ind i Europa. Man må spørge: Hvor er Merkel og de andre EU-lederes sikkerhedsbevissthed? Det lader til at de handler uden at tænke. Efter Paris og Bruxelles er det utilgiveligt. Nu er de blevet advaret af sin egen ekspertise.
Det er svært at forstå at den politiske toppledelse i dagens Europa har nogen som helst forståelse af hvad det handler om. Deres opførsel minder om søvngængeri.
The European Commission has recently also proposed visa-free travel deals with Kosovo, Ukraine and Georgia, which are blighted by organised crime.
“The proposed visa liberalisation for Turkish citizens travelling to the EU could potentially have an impact on the terrorist risk in the EU in as far as the movement of terrorists of Turkish citizenship to and from the Schengen area is concerned,” the report states.
Kosovo er det område i Europa, der har afgivet flest krigere til Syrien. Hvorfor skulle Kosovo inkluderes i Schengen? Det er ubegripelig.
The fingerprints of people entering Europe with a visa are logged on a single database that can be searched by counter-terrorism investigators, an extra level of security that is removed by the deal.
Kosovo has produced up to 300 fighters in Syria and Iraq, the highest per capita rate in Europe, a separate report warns, adding the government is poorly equipped to intercept them.
“Visa liberalisation could also have an impact on undetected entry into the EU of persons from Kosovo who return from war zones where they had joined terrorist networks,” the report says.
Ikke bare jihadister, men også kriminelle kommer til dækket bord: Politiet og told har allerede store problemer. Hvorfor øger man så omfanget?
The Turkish mafia, which traffics vast volumes of drugs, sex slaves, illegal firearms and refugees into Europe may undergo “direct territorial expansion towards the EU” as a result of the deal, the report admits. “Suspect individuals being allowed to travel to the Schengen territory without the need to go through a visa request procedure would have a greater ability to enter the EU without being noticed.”
It says reforms to the Turkish police, judiciary and counter-terrorism apparatus that are a pre-condition of the visa deal will help “mitigate” the risk.
Systemet forudsætter at Tyrkiet har samme interesser som Europa. Men hvad får EU og Merkel til at tro det? Erdogan har tydelig vist at han ikke respekterer hverken europæiske værdier eller samfund.
“It can be expected that, as soon as Turkish citizens will obtain visa-free entry to the EU, foreign nationals will start trying to obtain Turkish passports in order to pretend to be Turkish citizens and enter the EU visa free, or use the identities of Turkish citizens, or to obtain by fraud the Turkish citizenship,” it says.
“This possibility may attract not only irregular migrants, but also criminals or terrorists.”
Kosovo har næsten ikke egen økonomi, men fungerer som et trækplaster på kriminalitet. Visumfrihed betyder uanede muligheder for kriminalitet. Det er indlysende. Mener EU at det er noget europæere skal finde sig i?
Kosovo is also route for the smuggling of reactivated firearms, millions of which are left over from the Balkans war, into Europe.
“An assessment of the security impact of visa liberalisation for Kosovo reveals that drug trafficking, the facilitation of irregular migration, corruption, money-laundering and fraud, trafficking in human beings, the illicit trafficking of small arms and light weapons and returning foreign terrorist fighters pose potential threats to the European Union’s internal security,” the report says.
Sir Richard Dearlove er meget direkte i sitt sprog når han siger Europa vil bli løbt over ende af millioner af migranter. I stedet for at lukke døren enda videre, bør den lukkes.
Dearlove anser visumfrihed for tyrkere som galskab:
In a major intervention on Monday Sir Richard, who served in the security services for nearly 40 years, warned that millions of migrants could come to the EU in the coming years.
“If Europe cannot act together to persuade a significant majority of its citizens that it can gain control of its migratory crisis then the EU will find itself at the mercy of a populist uprising, which is already stirring,” he said.
Han giver vand på møllen til Leave-kampagnen, men couldn’t car less.
He criticised the decision to give visa-free travel to Turkey and warned that the choice in the upcoming referendum is to either “fight for fundamental change” or “conclude the EU in its present form has run its historical course and is heading the way of history”.
In an apparent criticism of the Government-backed Remain campaign, he added: “The establishment answers makes light of the EU’s current malaise and has heaped on us the arguments for staying and sticking with what we have.”
