CJEU forces Hungary to close down migrant transit zones

After the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled that keeping asylum seekers in the transit zone on the Hungarian-Serbian border constitutes “detention”, the Hungarian administration moved to close down transit zones.

    Gergely Gulyas spokesperson for the Prime Minister’s Office, said at his weekly media briefing that government would close down transit zones.

    Migrants will now only be able to submit asylum requests at foreign representations – outside Hungary.

    The transit zone was a way of protecting Hungary’s borders, and the judgement of the Court of Justice of the European Union adopted on this matter was regrettable Gulyas said. But Hungary is obliged to comply with the judgement, leaving it no choice but to close down the transit zones.

    The Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice will take the necessary steps, Gulyas added.

    Thus, the Röszke and Tompa container warehouses on the Serbian-Hungarian border, secured with a barbed wire fence on the Hungarian side and left open in the direction of Serbia will no longer operate.

    The CJEU in Luxembourg last week assessed the placement of refugees as “detention” and asked Hungary to release some 280 people immediately. According to the authority, Hungary is violating EU law with the transit zone.

    The judge’s decision was based on the case of four Iranian and Afghan asylum seekers who entered Hungary via Turkey, Bulgaria and Serbia. They were not granted asylum there. The Hungarian authorities justified this by saying that the migrants had entered via safe countries.

      Hungary could have rejected the EU’s decision against its migrant transit zones if it chose to, but seems to have been prepared for the questionable EU court ruling and thus was ready to change asylum application and entry procedures. The new border facilities for interning the illegals had been finished as if it was anticipated they would be needed. However, Hungary’s decision also means that border crossers will be immediately detained as illegals pending deportation. The Hungarian government is correct regarding safe countries, as opposed to the globalist-funded Hungarian Helsinki Committee, which has as its aim the undermining of Orban’s government and the end of Hungary’s border control.
