At Roissy, children at risk?
L'Agence européenne des droits fondamentaux (FRA) sous-entend que la police renvoie à l'étranger des voyageurs mineurs en situation irrégulière sans en référer à la justice. La police aux frontières de Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle renvoie-t-elle à l'étranger des enfants voyageant seuls et en situation irrégulière, sans prévenir la justice de leur arrivée à l'aéroport? L'accusation figure à mots couverts dans un rapport publié le 10 novembre par l'Agence européenne des droits fondamentaux (FRA).

"Worrying levels" of violence against women found in Ireland

The conference has heard from both national and international experts - including the EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA). Joanna Goodey from the FRA says that while the level of gender violence in Ireland is on par with the rest of Europe, there are grounds for concern. "They are worrying levels of violence - if you compare the 28 member states of the EU, what we find is that women in Ireland are reporting violence more than in other member states to the police and other services."
