Europe’s judges overturn asylum regulation




22 December 2011

Presseurop







An asylum seeker cannot be transferred to an EU state where he or she “risks having to endure degrading or inhumane treatment,” reports Die Tageszeitung.
The European Court of Justice has set a precedent by ruling in favour
of six refugees from Afghanistan, Iran and Algeria who entered the EU
via Greece, and thereafter filed for asylum in the UK and Ireland. In
line with the Dublin II regulation
which stipulates that asylum applications must be processed by the
first European state in which a refugee arrives, the six had been
returned to Greece, where the conditions for refugees are catastrophic.

The court's verdict, which referred to the European Charter of
Fundamental Rights, has undermined Dublin II. Noting that in 2010 90%
of illegal immigrants entered the EU via Greece, the judges took the
view that “Greek authorities are not capable of managing the flow of
refugees.” They further pointed out that the UK and Ireland must be
aware of the risks in Greece, where refugees find themselves in an
unbearable situation and have to contend with interminable delays in
the processing of their applications, and should not deport them to the
country.

In the wake of the judgement, from now on the state where refugees
are located when detained by authorities will have to process their
applications, explains TAZ, which notes that Germany is not ready to accept "a general change to the Dublin system."

I think it"s time to make a sharp exit from the EU, Ireland will be furious at this judgement. We already have a new situation where the Eurostar is being
used to bring in new immigrants who are not monitored before they leave Belgium.Germany is not willing to accept the Dublin 11 arrangement and I think
it is time Britain and Ireland considered the repercussions of this ruling.
