Slovakia ignores EU rules on refugees

The European Commission has noticed that Slovakia has not been fulfilling its duties stemming from the EU quotas on re-distribution of refugees among member states. It is, however, tight lipped about sanctions against the country.

Slovakia has still not installed liaison officers tasked with selecting from among refugees in Greece that are to be handled as asylum seekers in Slovakia. Meanwhile the one originally designated for this role in Italy has been re-authorised to help with asylum requests, according to the Interior Ministry and the European Commission (EC) – although originally reported as a liaison officer.
