A Dutch court has rejected an aid organization’s demand that the country’s government house more migrants who are living in camps in Greece and Italy.
The Hague Court of Appeal upheld a lower court’s decision that the government can’t be legally compelled to take in more migrants earmarked for relocation under a European Union agreement dating back to September 2015.
The court said in a statement Tuesday that numbers of migrants agreed to by EU member states in 2015 “are not absolute, but depend on the number of asylum-seekers who are actually selected for relocation.”
The organization that started the legal proceedings said in a statement that fewer migrants than expected are eligible for relocation because EU nations have been slow in making space available and many migrants don’t have faith in the relocation program. – AP
