The EU border control agency Frontex reports that a market for sale of Syrian passport has emerged, especially in Turkey. Migrants and refugees hope passports can help them into the EU, NRK writes.
Now Frontex warns of fake Syrians.
- There are people who are in Turkey now to buy false Syrian passports, because they know that Syrians have a right to asylum in all EU member states, said Frontex chief Fabrice Leggeri to the French radio station Europe 1.
- People who use false Syrian passport, often speak Arabic, but they can come from North Africa or the the whole Middle East. They seem to be economic migrants, he said.
There is no evidence of false passports having been used by potential terrorists to take to Europe, says Leggeri.
He repeated in the interview the call for additional border guards in the EU, that can assist with registering of migrants in Greece, which is one of the main entry points into Europe for migrants.
- Registration systems are overwhelmed. We have an idea of nationalities, but not a clear picture of who's coming and the real profile of these migrants, says the Frontex boss.
