Czech Republic is about to litigate against EU over 525 asylum seekers

03 June 2015

The Czech Republic is about to litigate against the European Union in the European Court of Justice if the European Commission’s plan for the mandatory national quotas for refugees is approved.

The EU plan envisages the Czech Republic to accept 525 refugees. The Czech President Milos Zeman is sure that people in need should be assisted in the places of their permanent residence and should not be called "beyond the seas".

The Czech Republic’s Prime Minister, Bohuslav Sobotka, and Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek backed this point of view.

The Czech Republic is not the only country to be against introduction of mandatory quota in response to migration crisis. The legislators of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Portugal and France also argue against it.
