Great to see some actual useful discussion here for once.
I was aware of the SIS system but did not think it was used for this purpose, as evidenced by the information here it clearly is used.
I know of situations personally where after your legal obligations are over no issues have been encountered at all. Of course there is no way to know 100% without doing an FOI request and actually getting a real answer, but in the cases I am aware of nothing was said/nothing happened at international borders both inside and outside of the EU.
It is concerning that for an alert
the following must be true;there is clear indication that a person intends to commit or is committing a serious criminal offence
they assess a person, in particular regarding their past criminal offences, and believe that the person will commit serious criminal offences in the future.
This is not being followed as the alert
s are sent out 100% of the time.
I have just found the following, written into EU law:Article 44
Retention period of alerts on persons
2. A Member State issuing an alert shall, within three years of its entry into SIS II, review the need to keep it. The period shall be one year in the case of alerts on persons pursuant to Article 36.
Further reading shows that the SIS alert
s placed upon a person will be automatically deleted after a period of one year unless there has been a review which has decided it must be extended.
