According to maritime laws, a ship’s automatic identification system must always be turned on when they are out of port and moving. According to reliable Greek and international press reports, many cargo ships turn off their GPS tracking to disappear from monitoring systems. Relevant information reveals that these ships make suspicious stops close to terrorist hotspots (Libya, Syria), and they might smuggle weapons and people.
Data from Windward research show that dubious stops have been made close to Crete, other parts of Greek waters, and close to Gibraltar.
Unless these activities are closely monitored, it is certain that both weapons and Jihadists will be smuggled into European countries.
Is the above information accurate in relation to the situation described above?
What is the Commission’s position on the matter, and how will these illegal activities be verified?
What will the Commission do to eliminate this issue?
