Original Message The EU took the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland to the bloc’s top court Thursday over their refusal to accept quotas for refugees, AFP said.

Brussels is determined to enforce the scheme launched at the height of the migrant crisis in 2015 to share 160,000 refugees around the bloc and ease the burden on Greece and Italy.

“The European Commission has today decided to refer the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland to the Court of Justice of the EU for non-compliance with their legal obligations on relocation,” the commission said.

Brussels launched infringement proceedings against the three states in June for failing to take in any refugees under the quota system.

These countries, which face heavy fines, say the quotas are an attempt by Brussels to limit national sovereignty.
