EU: Council of the European Union: Council seeking to draw up non-legislative guidelines to extend its "returns" policy to removals by land


EU: Council of the European Union: Council seeking to draw up non-legislative guidelines to extend its "returns" policy to removals by land (generally under the Returns Directive these are by air): Transit by land of returnees (EU doc no: 14541/10, pdf). The Council is seeking: "to find effective solutions to implement voluntary departures in full compliance with legal instruments, such as the Return Directive and without causing excessive administrative burdens."

The Council's Contact Committee on the Return Directive proposed drawing up Recommendations for the transit by land of returnees and "a technical working group of interested Member States (CZ, HU, LV, PL, SI), together with the Commission have elaborated such recommendations. These are based on voluntary involvement of Member States and do not imply any legal obligations."
