FRONTEX operation in Senegal

239 views

This archives video stockshot shows images of the participation of the Italian vessel "Diciotti" to HERA II, the second module of the HERA Operation coordinated by Frontex. HERA II was commenced on 11 August 2006. Originally planned for 9 weeks, the operation was later prolonged until 15 December 2006. Following a request for participation sent by Frontex, three Member States offered their assets for the joint sea operation: Italy (1 vessel, 1 aircraft), Portugal (1 vessel) and Finland (1 aircraft). Vessels and planes from these countries, together with Spanish technical means, patrolled the coastal areas of Senegal, Mauritania, Cape Verde and the Canary Islands. Based on their bilateral agreements with Spain, Senegal and Mauritania were also involved with their assets and staff. The main aim of this joint effort was to detect vessels setting off towards the Canary Islands and to divert them back to their point of departure thus reducing the number of lives lost at sea. During the course of the operation, more than 3 500 migrants were stopped from this dangerous endeavour close to African coast.
