Brussels to sue Hungary, Poland and Czech Republic over asylum-seekers

Brussels to sue Hungary, Poland and Czech Republic over asylum-seekers
Budapest also faces legal action over university and NGO laws.

By JUDITH MISCHKE 12/7/17, 1:42 PM CET Updated 12/7/17, 9:29 PM CET
The European Commission said Thursday it would take Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) over their refusal to host asylum seekers.

The Commission also said it would take Hungary to the ECJ, the EU’s highest court, over two other controversial legal matters: its higher education law, which critics say curbs academic freedom, and its law on foreign-funded NGOs, which some Hungarians argue is designed to weaken independent civil society.

The Commission also took legal proceedings over Hungary’s asylum law to the next step, by issuing a formal request for Budapest to comply with EU law. It said Budapest’s response to a Commission letter expressing concerns about the law was “found to be unsatisfactory as it failed to address the majority of the concerns.”

Hungary has been given a deadline of two months to respond to the latest step in the Commission’s action over the law. If it fails to comply, it will also be referred to the ECJ.

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.

Maybe these countries would be better in a Central European Union of their own with some special trade deals with the EU.

That's why trading one's national sovereignty for money is not a good idea. Now they're talking about a "United States" of Europe? Ugh. NO! Just say NO!

I used to like the idea of a U.S.E. because I thought it would be grand and glorious. Then I realised it would have weak democracy with so many people and member states. And, of course, all the different languages and economic conditions. A U.S.E. isn't necessary anyway - there can still be close cooperation without a central European government.

how about all the disparate cultures? different people prefer different political styles. I don't see Frenchmen, Englishmen, Germans, and Spaniards getting along under a single governmental system.

What it’s different between them, except the monarchy and federal system ?
All of theses countries, except Spain, have liberals leaders.

And the United States of Europe is an idea without leaving the national sovereignty.
