Slovakia: Suspension of Dublin returns to Hungary

Thursday, July 21, 2016

On 21 July 2016, the Ministry of Interior of Slovakia confirmed that all Dublin returns from Slovakia to Hungary have been suspended as of 15 June 2016. The suspension was based on the Hungarian government’s decision not to accept Dublin requests. According to the Human Rights League, the last Dublin return has been exercised on 9 May 2016.
