CJEU: Actions brought against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic for failing to fulfil relocation obligations

Thursday, December 21, 2017

The Commission has asked the CJEU in cases C-715/17 against Poland, C-718/17 against Hungary and C-719/17 against the Czech Republic to rule that the three EU Member States have failed to fulfil their obligations under the Relocation Decisions (Council Decision (EU) 2015/1523 and Council Decision (EU) 2015/1601). This is the next stage of the infringement procedure against the three Member States launched by the European Commission in June 2017.
