Another example of lost sovereignty for EU member states, if you can no longer control your borders, then you can no longer continue to claim that you’re a sovereign state, it’s that simple. Any EU or local politician that claims otherwise should be publicly humiliated. KGS
Danish border controls break Schengen law: experts
Denmark’s decision to deploy permanent customs officers at its borders breaks the European Union’s Schengen agreement, two Danish law professors said in an opinion piece published Wednesday. “The Schengen border codex says directly that speed must not be reduced as a result of control facilities,” Carsten Willemoes Joergensen and Karsten Engsig Soerensen of Aarhus University wrote in the Berlingske daily. “When you see the pictures that have been published of the border facilities that are to be established, these clearly contravene Schengen.”
The professors said they had compared the wording of Denmark’s border agreement with that of the Schengen agreement. “We are convinced that if the issue comes to the European court, Denmark will lose. It will not take much of a queue and waiting time at the border before the Commission will react,” they wrote. “Schengen does not differentiate between police and customs officers, it just says that there should not be personal controls at borders.
