On 4-5 June, the 2946th meeting of the Justice and Home Affairs Council was held in Luxembourg, EU Interior Ministers met to discuss the closure of Guantanamo Detention Centre under which topic Ministers agreed that Member States that consider taking in former detainees would inform all others Member States and share information received from the United States. In a joint press conference that followed the meeting which was held together with Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Freedom and Security, Martin Pecina, Czech Minister for the Interior and President in office of the Council, explained that they created a technical framework so that if Member States decide to welcome some detainees, those persons would not be the source of any security risk and they will ensure some mechanisms providing control over these persons within the Schengen area. They also looked into recent developments on illegal immigration in the Mediterranean. Jacques Barrot said that there is a need to struggle against illegal immigration by strengthening Frontex, but there is also a need to deal efficiently with asylum procedures, and the EU must ensure that demands are properly examined in all member states.
