Countries that refuse the compulsory settlement of migrants may have to pay heavy fines - The Financial Times

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

The revision of the Dublin asylum regulation introduces new measures against countries that oppose the compulsory quotas – those countries expected to pay €250,000 per migrant write The Financial Times online edition quoting EU sources.

EU officials said the new regulation will be included in the Dublin Convention reform draft, which will be tabled on Wednesday; but the proposal still hasn't finalized the source added.

According to sources quoted by the Financial Times, the idea is that the payment scheme "should look like a punitive sanction" (which targets mostly the countries of Eastern Europe that are dead set against the compulsory quota system. Behind the scene forces that run the migration business seem determined to complete Europe's native population replacement project one way or another).

Some Eastern European countries, including Poland and Hungary have been lobbying for an alternative solution to compulsory quota system for some time, but the high fines will be a shocker to these countries write the English business daily.

Based on the proposed fines the rejection of the compulsory quota system may cost about €1.5 billion Euros to Poland and about €323 million to Hungary.

The prime minister of the Czech Republic reacted to the report by saying that his government continues to oppose both the compulsory quotas and the penalties.

The Czech Republic persistently opposes any quota system for the distribution of migrants wrote the PM Sobotka on Twitter.

Czech Interior Minister Milan Chovanec didn’t comment on the unofficial report, but noted that neither quotas nor the proposed fines were solution to the migration crisis. "If the report turns out to be true, I will ask for authorization from the government to introduce counter-measures against the proposal" said the Czech interior minister.
