The Office of the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) announced it had opened an investigation into the EU border agency Frontex for "automatically sharing" information with Europol relating to interviews of detained migrants and asylum seekers. The announcement came after the EDPS published the results of its audit of Frontex.
According to Politico, the EDPS is warning that "troves of Europeans' and migrants' data are likely being shared illegally with Europol, which has grown increasingly powerful in the past few years when it comes to aggregating and monitoring law enforcement data across the bloc."
