Hungary became the first European country to stop admitting refugees from the Middle East and Africa.
Hungary has violated EU norms in relation to migrants. This decision was reached by the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg on Thursday, December 17.
вЂњRestricting access to international protection, illegal placement in the custody of asylum seekers in transit zones, movement of illegally arrived citizens of third countries (non-EU members) Into transit zones without observing the guarantees associated with the return procedure are a violation of EU lawвЂќ, вЂ” said in the court order.
Recall that on September 23, the EU introduced a new system of migration and asylum. The document regulates the reception of people at the border, the distribution of responsibilities between the EU countries, and cooperation with countries from which refugees mainly come.
