Czech PM wants European Union to withdraw migrants lawsuit

Czech PM wants European Union to withdraw migrants lawsuit

The European Commission on Thursday made a decision 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 temporary emergency relocation scheme was established in two Council Decisions in September 2015, in which Member States committed to relocate persons in need of global protection from Italy and Greece.

The three countries claim that Brussels is attempting to interfere with their national sovereignty. If it fails to comply, it will also be referred to the ECJ.

In a separate move, the Commission also referred Hungary to the Court of Justice over two other laws, one on higher education and the other on non-governmental institutions.

The EU executive also announced on Thursday it would be escalating its attack on Hungary over measures taken to curb meddling in its domestic affairs by globalist billionaire George Soros. "This is why the commission has chose to move to the next stage of the infringement procedure and refer the three member states to the Court of Justice of the European Union".

Attorney: Ex-cop who shot black man had no 'racial animus'
Scott family lawyer Justin Bamberg said: 'I think everybody's just ready to close this chapter of life and start the next chapter. Federal officials have recommended 10 to almost 13 years in prison, but his attorneys argue Slager should face far less time.

It said in a statement that it was suing Hungary as the 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".

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.

The law on nonprofits compels civic groups getting more than around $27,000 a year in funding from overseas to register themselves with a court and identify themselves as being "foreign-funded" on their websites and all publications.

Reacting to the EC's latest decision at a press conference in Brussels, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said the mandatory resettlement quotas are impossible to implement, unreasonable and a violation of European Union rules, and vowed that the government will defend its position before the CJEU.

The European Parliament also voted to start an EU sanctions procedure over Warsaw's controversial judicial reforms that could eventually suspend Polish voting rights in the bloc.
