Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic must accept asylum seekers

Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic are obliged to take over asylum seekers from Italy and Greece. That is the opinion of the Advocate General of the European Court of Justice in a case that the European Commission has brought against the three countries. The Advocate General's opinion is usually taken over by the Court.

In 2017, the European Commission had started legal proceedings against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic for refusing to cooperate with the relocation of asylum seekers. The EU countries had made that agreement in 2015 to relieve Italy and Greece. A spokesman for the European Commission only wants to comment on the case once the Court has made a final decision, she said.

The Court already rejected a request from Hungary and Slovakia in 2017 for the annulment of the asylum seeker reception system. Hungary puts asylum seekers in reception camps at the border with Serbia, but does not do anything with it. According to EU, Hungary must urgently provide food for rejected asylum seekers in camps on the border with Serbia. The European Commission goes to the European Court of Justice differently, Brussels wrote earlier to the Orbán government.

According to Brussels, the forced detention of the rejected asylum seekers in the transit camps amounts to actual detention. Hungary is therefore required by European rules to ensure that they are fed. The daily EU administration already asked Hungary to clarify the issue in July, but the country has not taken satisfactory action, the committee said, pointing out the urgency of the matter.
