Our Deputy Director Martin Michelot commented on RTVS the return of jihadists back to European countries.

Our Deputy Director Martin Michelot commented for Slovak radio RTVS on the return of jihadists back to European countries and the failure of the Schengen area to  prevent such movements.

Many countries do not use the tools that the Shenghen area offers. They do not exchange information about suspicious people. Jihadist often do not arrive to Paris, Lion or Marseille, where they would be arrested, but they come for example to Amsterdam or Prague, from where they can then move freely.
