cep legal expert Urs Poetzsch in an interview with German broadcaster Deutsche Welle on plans by some EU leaders for stricter border controls

“It's up to the member states to introduce border controls for a certain time period,” Poetzsch told Deutsche Welle. Yet, “the Borders Code states very clearly that border checks inside the Schengen zone have to remain an exception,” the legal expert pointed out.
