What information is in the Schengen Information System?

What type of information is included in Schengen? I used to live in Poland as an American citizen. I dated a girl there and she called my new girlfriend and started some trouble. I wrote her and told you she shouldn't have done that and that I should call her new boyfriend and do that same. Actually I did.

I just told him that she and I were seeing each other when they were. That I wouldn't otherwise care, but that she started it. A stupid thing to do. Anyway, she said she reported it to the police as harassment. I don't care about her. I don't ever want to see her again. Or hear from her again. But I want to come back to Poland to visit. Will I be stopped at the border if she did in fact file some sort of complaint with the police?

Nope.

And i doubt she called the police.

Good to know. I've been worried about that for a while. I know Schengen can be tough on non EU's.

Depends on the country. I'm not sure what Poland is doing exactly (some countries, like France, use SISone4ALL as their national system too), but if you're known to the police, it's likely to come up.

Will I be stopped at the border if she did in fact file some sort of complaint with the police?

Maybe, maybe not. If the police were interested enough in the case to put it on the system, then yes, you're likely to trigger a "hit" on SIS.

I know Schengen can be tough on non EU's.

It's not only SIS that you want to worry about, but the fact that if she made a complaint to the police - this will come up during any future residency applications.

I'd suggest getting hold of your Polish police record and finding out if they want to talk to you about it before trying to cross a Schengen border.

Paul,

So all of this happened by telephone while you were back to the U.S. and she still in Poland? First of all, I doubt she filed a complaint. She rather looks like somebody with a big mouth, and probably not many guts. Furthermore, filing for harassment has been a specialty in the U.S. and not necessarily in all countries ;-) and this case looks rather childish to me.

And if such complaint was actually filed, the police will investigate the communications both of you had by requesting informations from the telephone company. Did you call her twenty times a day during this "conflict"? Did you threaten her of rape or murder? You're innocent unless proven otherwise, and you wouldn't probably come back to Poland just to meet one of those immature and emotional Polish pests, would you? ;-)

Forget about it and sleep well...

Indeed - but given the somewhat odd nature of Polish justice, it wouldn't surprise me if the police here wanted to have a chat with him.

i see a childish exchange of letters, but no harassment.

the police have more important things to think about.

Indeed, it is unlikely that any police force in the world investigate a childlish exchange of letters between one former Romeo and one former Juliette. Certain "Juliettes" may sometimes be very crazy, however. An extreme case of stalking in Poland in which a woman did not let alone a handsome and married surgeon whom she met during her appointment in a hospital and who rejected her "advances" had lasted for two years and resulted in a police brigade breaking into Juliette's flat in order to arrest her [a full page story on that in the "Rzeczpospolita" daily].

Rejected Juliettes may be dangerous, not only in the Schengen zone.

Rejected Juliettes are indeed dangerous. She was one of the most immature persons I have ever known, and it pulled me into an childish situation in which I also behaved immaturely. I regret having ever met her. But young women are often the best actresses. She cheated on me, but behaved like I was the bad guy. I even felt bad for a while until she showed her true self. It's why I rejected her. She didn't take it well.

She did damage with her call. Otherwise, I would have ignored her. I probably should have anyway.

Thanks for your input. It is good to know that the Polish police have better things to do.
