Czech PM wants European Union to withdraw migrants lawsuit

EU sues Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland over low refugee intake EU takes Hungary to top court over crackdown 'aimed at George Soros'

He spoke after the EU executive sued Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic in the European Court of Justice on Thursday for their refusal to host these migrants.

A relocation plan was launched by the European Union in 2015 in response to a large influx of migrants and refugees.

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.

On June 15, 2017, the Commission launched infringement procedures against the three countries on the issue of refugee relocation, taking the process to the next level by sending its "reasoned opinions" on July 26, after the replies provided by the three Member States were found to be unsatisfactory.

The EU took Hungary to the bloc's top court on Thursday over a crackdown on education and foreign-backed civil society groups that critics say targets USA billionaire George Soros.

Newly elected premier Andrej Babiš said it was wrong to force migrants on unwilling nations, while his spokesman denounced the quota system as "interfer [ence] in the Czech Republic's internal affairs".

Responding to the move, Poland's Deputy Foreign Minister Konrad Szymanski said his nation "is ready to defend its position in the Court", and declared: "No one will lift the duty of providing public safety from the Polish government".

In 2015 European Union states agreed to relocate 160,000 asylum-seekers between them based on the size and wealth of each country, however, Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary voted against accepting mandatory quotas.

The Commission has made a decision to start legal proceedings against Hungary for failing to fulfil its obligations under the Treaty provisions on the free movement of capital, due to provisions in the NGO Law which indirectly discriminate and disproportionately restrict donations from overseas to civil society organisations These provisions, which apply by reference to the foreign source of the capital, place a number of administrative formalities and burdens on the recipient of capital and are liable to have a stigmatising effect on both recipients and donors.

The commission said Hungary's education law "disproportionally restricts European Union and non-EU universities in their operations and needs to be brought back in line with European Union law".

Critics say the higher education law aims to weaken the Budapest-based Central European University, a popular university with foreign students founded by the billionaire George Soros, who has a long-running feud with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. Thus, they may dissuade people from making donations from overseas to civil society organisations in Hungary.
