Brussels to sue Hungary, Poland and Czech Republic over asylum seekers

EU sues Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland over low refugee intake

The EU took the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland to the bloc's top court on December 7 over their refusal to accept quotas for asylum-seekers, setting up a new clash between Brussels and key eastern states.

The temporary emergency relocation scheme was established in two Council Decisions in September 2015 (Council Decision (EU) 2015/1523 and Council Decision (EU) 2015/1601), in which Member States committed to relocate persons in need of global protection from Italy and Greece.

The European Commission on Thursday chose to haul the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland before the Court of Justice of the EU, in the latest legal action against them for not taking in refugees.

The three countries claim that Brussels is attempting to interfere with their national sovereignty.

On 15 June 2017, the Commission launched infringement procedures against the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.

Separately, the commission is also taking Hungary to the ECJ over its laws on higher education and NGOs. With over 32,000 persons having been relocated so far, there are still eligible applicants in Italy and Greece that should be relocated as a matter of priority.

Under the European Union law, the Commission has the power to take legal action against a member state which is not respecting its obligations.

On the Hungarian asylum law, a response from Budapest to a letter from the Commission was "found to be unsatisfactory as it failed to address the majority of the concerns", the Commission said in a statement.

The EU executive also announced on Thursday it would be escalating its attack on Hungary over measures taken to curb meddling in its domestic affairs by globalist billionaire George Soros.

The organization has also chose to file a lawsuit in the European court of justice against Hungary adopted in this country, the laws on non-governmental organizations and higher education.

Hungary also caused controversy in June when it passed legislation forcing non-governmental organisations to declare themselves "foreign-funded".

Poland's rightwing government is also in the EU's legal crosshairs.

Last month the ECJ warned Warsaw to stop logging in one of Europe's last primeval forests "immediately" or face fines of up to 100,000 euros a day.
