Screening expert

2019-04-05

Saso is a Slovenian expert working for Frontex on Lesvos as screener as part of operation Poseidon. He helps the Greek authorities to determine the nationality of migrants arriving on the island. He is one of the protagonists of an EU Commission’s video on Europe’s ordinary heroes.

“I’m an expert screener at the Moria centre here in Lesbos. My job is to establish the nationality of migrants arriving on the island, because many of them don’t carry any identification. I help local police register migrants. I’m European, and I consider Greece’s borders to be our borders too. It’s critical to our security that we know who’s crossing them. This is an ongoing issue, which is why cooperation between Frontex and the Greek authorities continues.”
