Brussels takes steps against Hungary over asylum procedures
Budapest, September 23 (MTI) – Hungary is among 20 member states against which Brussels has launched infringement procedures related to the migrant crisis, the European Commission said on Wednesday.
The commission has taken steps against these states for failing to inform the body on how they incorporated the EU directive on refugee procedures into their national legislation, as well as regulations on the minimum level of services and conditions at refugee reception centres.
Brussels already sent an “administrative letter” — a step which precedes infringement procedures — to Hungary and four other states at the end of August, criticising them for failing to use the EURODAC system, a database for comparing the fingerprints of asylum seekers.
