EU urges Hungary to ensure migrant holding camps comply with asylum rules

By Krisztina Than BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungary must ensure that its new policy of detaining migrants on its border does not break EU rules on protecting people in need of asylum, the European Commission said on Tuesday as the legislation came into force. The European Commissioner in charge of migration issues said the government has agreed to work with EU experts regarding the legislation under which migrants will be held in camps while their asylum requests are processed. “In a very friendly spirit of positive cooperation we decided to work together through our experts and ensure that EU rules also are complied with,” Dimitris Avramopoulos told a news conference after his meeting in Budapest.
