Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

I admire your theoretical knowledge of the EU, I do admit. But it doesn't matter if the EU itself doesn't respect those rules. Might I add that legally Borrell did not violate any rules of the EU treaty - he is the EU's top diplomat, his job is to talk and listen. His mistake was of a political nat...

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

How did we react? "Not my responsability, but give me power" Give me strength. It's like sulking that your teacher didn't take you on a warp drive space trip to another galaxy while your teacher hasn't got the competence to do so. Do enlighten us: on what legal grounds could the EU have d...

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

A flight (between 2 Schengen countries) is forced to divert outside of EU and a passenger is detained. How much protection have we seen? None. The EU doesn't have a lot of competencies in the military field. NATO is the right body to protect our countries, but what could NATO have done in this case...

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

An EU Rule is firm legislation in each of the 27 countries. Countries can't minimize or ignore a Rule by own legislation. Example: EU Rule 261/2004 on passengers right in case of denied boarding, cancelled flights, delayed flights. If a Belgian citizen books a flight from Frankfurt to Brazil, 261/2...

Might I add that the next EU Council meeting (the board that leads the EU consisting of the elected heads of state/government of the member states ) is at 24-25 JUNE which means that government aircraft from most member states will be flying in to Brussels for the occasion, providing an opportunity ...

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

I don't see how one can "advocate more competences" if the current system seems to have evolved somehow into a political retirement scheme for national politicians. Because you end up in the same old discussion: national politics still wants to govern, and Europe is a side project that sh...

Thx. It's not european ban, there are some national bans. I understand better. So national ban and european blah ! Well, the EU "suggests" and every EU country still has the right to make a decision. I can't see anything wrong here, on the contrary. It’s a huge problem and this mentality ...
