Gilles de Kerchove, EU counter-terrorism coordinator
Issued on: Modified:
Gilles de Kerchove, the EU's counter-terrorism coordinator, speaks to FRANCE 24. He wants to choke terrorism networks by reducing their online presence. He is outraged that the European Parliament is blocking the implementation of a US-style Passenger Name Record in Europe and he applauds the UK for its recent restrictive legislation concerning people returning from fighting with terrorist organisations in Syria and Iraq.
