Czech PM wants European Union to withdraw migrants lawsuit

EU takes Hungary to court over'anti-Soros laws

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 commission, the EU's executive body, accused the three countries of "non-compliance with their legal obligations on relocation".

However, the Czech Republic has accepted only 12 of the 2,000 asylum-seekers it had been designated, while Hungary and Poland have received none. Brussels launched infringement proceedings against the three states in June for failing to take in any refugees under the quota system.

The European Union is taking three of its member states to court for failing to accommodate their fair share of 160,000 refugees.

The Commission said Thursday that the three "remain in breach of their legal obligations" and "have given no indication that they will contribute to the implementation of the relocation decision". He said migrant quotas were not the right solution for Europe and only boosted extremist parties on the Continent.

Poland's Deputy Foreign Minister Konrad Szymanski also said his government was "ready to defend its position in the court".

Should Mr Babis' bid for further negotiation prove unsuccessful, the European Commission's latest move will mark the second time the eastern states have been taken to court over the dispute, having already lost one case at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.

For Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic this legal precedent - not news, but a logical effect.

Hungary has introduced an education law that could shut the Soros-founded Central University in Budapest, which has always been seen as a hostile bastion of liberalism by Orban's rightwing government.

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.

Hungary also caused controversy in June when it passed legislation forcing non-governmental organisations to declare themselves "foreign-funded". Thus, they may dissuade people from making donations from overseas to civil society organisations in Hungary.
