Justice minister: Hungary puts forward reasons for objection to mandatory quotas
Budapest, December 4 (MTI) – Hungary has put forward ten reasons for the abolishment of migrant resettlement quotas, the justice minister told a news conference on Friday.
Laszlo Trocsanyi noted that Hungary had submitted its objections to the EU quotas at the European Court on Thursday. He noted that parliament had approved a law obliging Hungary to take action against the quota system.
In a 25-page document, the justice ministry advanced ten arguments, substantive and procedural, in favour of abolishing the quota system, he said. It is expected that the case will last one and a half years and will set a precedent, he said, adding that hopefully other EU countries would intervene on Hungary’s behalf.
