The EU member nations have been cautioned by the European Commission that sanctions would be imposed on them for refusing to accept immigrants and refugees and infringement proceedings would be commenced against such members within a week.
This note of caution has been issued after the Czech Republic made a statement that it would not permit any more immigrants into the nation. The Czech Republic has been protesting against the quota of immigrants assigned to it from the initial days itself, as quoted by the Euro News.
EU Commissioner for Migration and Home Affairs Dimitri Avramopoulos was quoted by the media as saying that infringement proceedings against member nations refusing to accept immigrants from last 12 months or are refusing to do so now will be initiated as it was a consensus decision to manage immigrants.
Earlier Milan Chovanec the Czech Interior Minister had said that his nation would not accept any more immigrants until the expiry of the EU plan in September 2017. He further elaborated that his government had decided to suspend the acceptance of immigrants owing to the faulty nature of the relocation process itself and the worsening security condition for the nation. Thus the Czech Republic would no longer accept immigrants arriving from Italy and Greece, added the Czech Interior Minister.
Only a few immigrants have been so far accepted by the Czech Republic out of the total 2,600 immigrants allocated to it, revealed the EU officials. On the other hand, Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland are also now refusing to accept the immigrants allocated to them.
