DIE FRONTEX FILES

Vera Deleja-Hotko, Ann Esswein, Luisa Izuzquiza, BartholomĂ€us von Laffert, Daniela Sala und Phevos Simeonidis (Disinfaux Collective) fĂŒr das ZDF Magazin Royale

Glock, Airbus, Heckler & Koch. Die Teilnehmerliste der 16 Lobby-Treffen der EU-Grenzschutzagentur Frontex in den Jahren 2017 bis 2019 liest sich wie das Who-is-Who der RĂŒstungsindustrie. Kataloge mit Handfeuerwaffen wurden herumgereicht und in bunten PowerPoint-PrĂ€sentationen die VorzĂŒge von Überwachungsdrohnen erklĂ€rt.

Externe Beobachter*innen gab es bei den Treffen nicht. Und Frontex hat die Inhalte dieser Treffen nicht öffentlich zugÀnglich gemacht. Ein Lobby-Transparenzregister, wie es EU-Parlamentarier*innen vor zwei Jahren gefordert haben, hat Frontex bis heute nicht veröffentlicht. Auf Anfrage des ZDF Magazin Royale schrieb die EU-Agentur Ende Januar:

»Frontex trifft sich nicht mit Lobbyisten.«

Weil Frontex seiner Verantwortung als EU-Agentur nicht gerecht wird, hat das ZDF Magazin Royale diese Aufgabe ĂŒbernommen. Hiermit veröffentlichen wir die FRONTEX FILES. Das erste Lobby-Transparenzregister der Grenzschutzagentur Frontex.


Was haben wir gemacht?

Gemeinsam mit den Rechercheurinnen Luisa Izuzquiza, Margarida Silva and Myriam Douo sowie der NGO „Frag den Staat“ hat das ZDF Magazin Royale 142 Dokumente von 16 Industry-Meetings, die Frontex zwischen 2017 und 2019 veranstaltet hat, ausgewertet. Darunter Programme, Teilnehmer*innenlisten, Powerpoint-PrĂ€sentationen und Werbekataloge.


Wie sind wir an die Dokumente gekommen?

Die Dokumente haben wir durch Anfragen nach dem Informationsfreiheitsgesetz der EuropÀischen Union erhalten.


Was ist besonders und neu daran?

Frontex hat die Einladungen zu den Treffen bisher nur teilweise auf der Webseite veröffentlicht. Wer dazu eingeladen war und was dort prÀsentiert wurde, jedoch nicht.


Was sagt Frontex und was stimmt?

Auf die Frage eines EU-Parlamentsabgeordneten im Jahr 2018 antwortete Frontex, man treffe sich nur mit Lobbyisten, die im Transparenzregister der EU registriert seien und veröffentliche jĂ€hrlich einen Überblick der Treffen auf der Website. 2017 habe es keine solcher Treffen gegeben.

Das stimmt nicht. Allein 2017 hat Frontex vier Meetings mit Lobby-Vertreter*innen abgehalten. 58 Prozent der Teilnehmenden waren nicht im EU-Transparenzregister gelistet. In den Treffen 2018 und 2019 waren 72 Prozent (91 von 125) der Lobbyist*innen nicht registriert.

Auf Anfrage des ZDF Magazin Royale schreibt Frontex:

»Frontex trifft sich nicht mit Lobbyisten. Es lĂ€dt Firmenvertreter ein, um an den Industrie-Tagen der Agentur teilzunehmen, die Grenzschutz-Offiziellen helfen sollen, ĂŒber neue Technologien und Innovationen in Bezug auf Grenzkontrolle zu lernen.«

Auch das ist falsch: Die Auswertung der PrÀsentationen und Kataloge zeigen, dass Unternehmen versucht haben, Einfluss auf die Politik der Agentur zu nehmen. Teilweise wurden VorschlÀge bereits umgesetzt.


Im Juni 2011 wurde das EU-Transparenzregister fĂŒr Lobbyist*innen auf Initiative der Kommission sowie dem Parlament eingefĂŒhrt. Das Ziel: FĂŒr die Bevölkerung transparenter zu machen, wer eigentlich Einfluss auf die EU-Politiker*innen nimmt. Der Haken: Sich zu registrieren ist fĂŒr Lobbyist*innen noch immer freiwillig.

Wer war bei den Frontex-Lobbytreffen?

An den Treffen haben 138 Vertreter*innen privater Einrichtungen teilgenommen: 108 Vertreter*innen von Unternehmen, 10 Think Tanks, 15 UniversitÀten, eine Nichtregierungsorganisation.
Keine einzige Menschenrechtsorganisation war bei diesen Treffen dabei.

Welche Produkte wurden prÀsentiert?

In den teils themenspezifischen Treffen wurden unterschiedliche GerĂ€tschaften prĂ€sentiert, die zur Verteidigung der EU-Außengrenzen dienen sollen. Dazu gehören Handfeuerwaffen, Munition und ÜberwachungsgerĂ€te wie Sensoren, Drohnen, Kameras und Server fĂŒr die Speicherung von biometrischen Daten. Die Produkte wurden in Powerpoint-PrĂ€sentationen vorgestellt.

    zum Thema [keine Angabe]


Warum ist es problematisch, wenn sich Frontex mit Waffenfirmen trifft?

Laut des neuen Mandats, das vom EU-Parlament im FrĂŒhjahr 2019 verabschiedet wurde, bekommt Frontex bis 2027 eine eigene „Stehende Reserve” von 10.000 Personen und darf Beamte im Einsatz an der Grenze mit Handfeuerwaffen ausrĂŒsten.

Das Problem: Bis heute gibt es keine rechtliche Regelung, die Beamt*innen einer EU-Agentur das Tragen von Schusswaffen erlaubt.


Was ist sonst noch problematisch?

Eines der meistgefragten Themen bei den Treffen: die Sammlung, der Gebrauch und die Speicherung biometrischer Daten (wie FingerabdrĂŒcke, Iris, Gesichter, Herzfrequenz), die auf lange Sicht eine Identifizierung mit Hilfe von PĂ€ssen hinfĂ€llig machen soll. Die Nutzung von Gesichtserkennungstechnologien ist innerhalb der EU sehr umstritten und bislang nicht ausreichend rechtlich geregelt. Das EU-Parlament hat sich fĂŒr einen gesetzlich angeordneten Aufschub (Moratorium) des Einsatzes ausgesprochen.


Was bedeuten die Dokumente fĂŒr Menschen auf der Flucht?

Menschen, die die EU-Außengrenze zu ĂŒberwinden versuchen, werden in den uns vorliegenden Dokumenten fast ausschließlich als Bedrohung oder Objekte geframt, die „gemanagt” werden mĂŒssen. In Anbetracht der Abwesenheit von Menschenrechtsorganisationen bei den Frontex-Treffen und der noch immer nicht aufgearbeiteten PushbackvorwĂŒrfe, ist das fatal.


Warum ist Frontex fĂŒr Lobbyist*innen so interessant?

Frontex ist die am schnellsten wachsende Agentur der EuropĂ€ischen Union. Hatte die Agentur im GrĂŒndungsjahr 2005 noch einen Etat von 6 Millionen Euro, waren es fĂŒr das Jahr 2020 schon 460 Millionen Euro. FĂŒr die Jahre 2021 bis 2027 stehen Frontex insgesamt 11 Milliarden Euro zur VerfĂŒgung.

Hinzu kommt: Seit 2019 hat Frontex ein neues Mandat, das den Besitz und Erwerb von Flugzeugen, Drohnen und Schusswaffen erlaubt - obwohl es fĂŒr letzteres keine rechtliche Grundlage gibt.


Lohnt sich der Einsatz fĂŒr die Unternehmen?

Es gibt eine signifikante Überschneidung zwischen Firmen, die direkt bei Frontex lobbyieren und jenen, die von EU-AuftrĂ€gen bei der Sicherung des EU-Außengrenzschutzes profitieren.
