“Today Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans threatened court action against countries that refuse to relocate refugees. The first infringement procedures, which could result in fines, may be launched as early as next month.”
These ‘infringement proceedings’ are part of the European Commission’s instruments to enforce its will on rebellious member states, this time being Austria, Denmark, Poland and Hungary.
In 2015, the EU agreed that by September 2017, 160.000 migrants would be resettled from Greece and Italy to other member states. With only seven months to go, only 8,162 people have actually been resettled, leaving a gap of over 150.000 people.
