France and the United Kingdom agree on heightened security policy

Translated Saturday 5 September 2015, by Adrian Jordan


Neither migrant deaths nor the desperate cries of those attempting to leave Calais for England greatly affect the French and English authorities. They have just agreed to issue a statement calling for heightened security. Revealed yesterday by Le Journal du Dimanche, the resolution, signed by French interior minister, Bernard Cazeneuve and his British counterpart, Theresa May, affirms their intention to “put an end” to the situation, principally, guaranteeing a further 10 million euros for securing the Eurotunnel terminal at Coquelles. More fencing, more police to stop the migrants circulating. “These measures all send out a strong message: our frontiers are secure and traffickers commit a crime in bringing the migrants to Calais”, migrants who, “will go no further”, stated the two ministers in an attempt to justify the measure.
