Rights groups press Commission to investigate violations of EU law in Greece till sidans topp

The European Commission should trigger an infringement procedure against Greece for its systematic breach of EU law in its treatment of people seeking asylum in Europe, a coalition of human rights groups said in a legal complaint filed today, just a day before the Commission will release a new European pact on asylum and migration.

The organizations said that the Greek government has failed to investigate and address well-documented allegations of rights violations, including continued violent pushbacks of people seeking asylum towards Turkey and the blatant disregard for asylum safeguards. The complaint was submitted by international law firm De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, who worked pro bono on behalf of WeMove Europe and Oxfam. The organizations now insist that the European Commission intervenes.

The groups warned the EU against replicating the failures of its current migration policies in the new pact and highlighted the need for increased solidarity and responsibility sharing between European countries, particularly following the fire that destroyed the notorious Moria refugee camp.

Marissa Ryan, Head of Oxfam's EU office, said:

"The European Commission is the guardian of EU law, and it should uphold and protect the fundamental rights of all people across Europe. What happened two weeks ago in Moria camp demonstrates Europe's collective failure to do so. The Commission should urgently assess whether the Greek authorities respect EU law and otherwise trigger legal proceedings against Greece for exposing people seeking asylum on its territory to suffering and abuse."

"If the European Commission wants to show that the new pact on asylum and migration is meant to improve Europe's asylum system, it should also demonstrate the resolve needed to ensure that all EU member states respect human rights and people's dignity."

Bulgaria given formal notice to comply with EU rules on asylum till sidans topp

On November 8 the European Commission gave Bulgaria formal notice concerning its implementation of EU asylum legislation, which it considers to presently be in breach of the provisions of Asylum Procedures Directive, Reception Conditions Directive, and Charter of Fundamental Rights.

The Commission's concerns relate in particular to the accommodation and legal representation of unaccompanied minors; the correct identification and support of vulnerable asylum seekers, provision of adequate legal assistance and the detention of asylum seekers as well as safeguards within the detention procedure.

Bulgaria was warned that if it does not act within the next two months, the Commission may move to the second stage of the infringement procedure and send a reasoned opinion on the matter.
