EU decides to re-introduce internal border controls in the Schengen area

EU home affairs ministers voted unanimously yesterday (7 June 2012) for the re-introduction of internal border controls in the Schengen area for six months, renewable for another six,”when the control of an external border is no longer ensured due to exceptional circumstances”. The measure has be seen against the background of uncontrolled flows of migrants into the EU. The decision was criticized by the European Commission and several members of the European Parliament have announced to reject the draft legislation.
