Greek Police officials have expressed their objection to the appointment of a Dutch officer in a leading position in the Europol team that is based in Greece.

Aside from the concerns over the officer’s limited experience, the Greek Police official fear that the officer will forward any critical information on the possible presence of jihadist terrorists to the Dutch government.

The fear is that in such a case the Greek government and local authorities will be last to learn of any developments. According to the Greek officials, Italian authorities convinced Europol to appoint an Italian in charge of the services monitoring arriving migrants.
