The EU is to sue Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic over their refusal to take in third world migrants, the European Commission announced on Thursday.
They will be referred to the European Court of Justice for “non-compliance with their legal obligations on relocation”, the commission said in a statement, referring to the three countries’ staunch refusal to take part in an EU scheme forcing migrants on unwilling nations.
Passed at the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, the controversial rule dictates that asylum seekers who illegally breach Europe’s borders be “fairly” redistributed across the bloc through a quota system.
In its statement, the unelected Commission said that the Visegrad nations of Central Europe “remain in breach of their legal obligations” and “have given no indication that they will contribute to the implementation of the relocation decision”.
