Poland-backed refugee quota complaints rejected by top European Union court

Poland-backed refugee quota complaints rejected by top European Union court”

"We protect Hungary from the invasion of migrants, but we provide help for genuine refugees, those whose lives are in direct danger on account of their religion, nationality, or political affiliation", Sejmen said, adding that Christians can easily integrate into the Christian European civilization, unlike Muslims, who refuse to do so.

The European Union's top court rejected a legal challenge Wednesday against a mandatory migrant relocation deal set in 2015.

Slovakia expressed disappointment but said it would accept the failure of a case that it brought jointly with Hungary, highlighting its reluctance to join Budapest and Warsaw in outright confrontation with Brussels.

"The real battle is only just beginning, and Hungary will be making use of all opportunities for legal redress to ensure that nobody can be relocated to Hungary against the wishes of the Hungarian people", Mr Szijjarto said.

Hungary and Slovakia asked the court to annul the decision. Slovakia has accepted about a dozen and Hungary has completely shut the door to any migrants. The decision is also likely to be welcomed by other countries such as Greece and Sweden, where the sheer volume of new arrivals threatens to overwhelm the system.

The EU has also refused to pay for a wall Hungary built at its Serbian border, reminding the country of its decision to "reject an offer of concrete solidarity" during the 2015 migrant crisis.

Szydlo says she isn't surprised by the court's decision, but that it "absolutely does not change the position of the Polish government with respect to migration policy". "Slovakia and Hungary have tried to dodge the EU's system for solidarity, but each country has a role to play in protecting people fleeing violence and persecution".

"In contravention of the founding treaties, the ruling asserts the power of the European Commission over EU member states".

It is part of a scheme to relocate a total of 160,000 asylum seekers by September this year.

European Home Affairs Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos had said he regretted how certain member states "continue to show no solidarity and to ignore our repeated calls to participate in this common effort".

According to the International Organization for Migration, 125,860 migrants and refugees have arrived in Europe by sea so far this year.

"ECJ confirms relocation scheme valid".

The commission said on Wednesday that 27,695 asylum seekers have been relocated so far from Greece (19,244) and Italy (8,451).

In March 2016, the European Union reached a deal with Turkey to send back asylum seekers who take clandestine routes to Greece from Turkey. "Hungary needs to respect the decision of the European Union court".
