Quelle

Though a number of EU Member States intend to send migrants back to Hungary, no one can be sent back here. People must be sent back to Greece, János Lázár, the Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office said at the press conference Governmentinfo 51 which he held jointly with Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács. The Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office stated at his press conference held on Thursday: a variety of Member States intend to send some 52,000 people back to Hungary, most of them from Germany. Hungary, however, informed all of its partners that these people arrived in Hungary via Greece, and even if they were not registered there, it does not mean that they should be sent back to Hungary, he said […].

The UNHCR criticised Hungary for doing this “despite the fact that no other EU member state applies a presumption of safety to those countries and that UNHCR has recommended that asylum-seekers should not be returned to them.” Ms Pardavi said Hungarian officials were now pushing for asylum seekers to be returned to Greece, which is already struggling to cope with 50,000 migrants stuck on its territory.

BBC: Migrant crisis – Hungarian jails crowded by ‚illegal‘ refugees

More than 1,000 refugees, most of them from war zones in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq, are detained in overcrowded Hungarian prisons or detention facilities. As of 10 November, almost 700 had been sentenced to expulsion by Hungarian courts for crossing the razor-wire fence along its southern borders. More than 200 others are detained, awaiting trial. Around 500 people are in asylum detention, a separate category under Hungarian law. The Serbian government is refusing to accept most deportees from Hungary, in protest against the fence.

Government rejects quota system

Therefore Hungary will not take back a single expelled illegal migrant, the Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office stated. János Lázár said: Western-European countries notified Hungary of the expulsion of some 40,000 people; however, they did not enter the European Union at Hungary but at Greece, and consequently, the individuals concerned must be sent back there. He added: the southern security border closure is working, and successfully prevents illegal border crossing.

EGMR setzt Abschiebung nach Ungarn aus

Laut einer Mail der EGMR-Pressestelle an eine ungarische Online-Zeitung hat der EGMR letzte Woche eine Abschiebung von Österreich von Ungarn vorübergehend untersagt:

Dear Sir, Thank you for your email. We can confirm that last week the Court decided to apply Rule 39 (interim measures) of the Rules of Court temporarily and asked for factual information from the Austrian Government in a case concerning a Syrian national facing removal from Austria to Hungary. Interim measures are urgent measures which, according to the Court’s well-established practice, apply only where there is an imminent risk of irreparable harm. Such measures are decided in connection with proceedings before the Court without prejudging any subsequent decisions on the admissibility or merits of the case in question.With best wishes, ECHR – Press Unit

Wirtschafts Blatt: Der Arbeitsstrich auf Malta sichert das Überleben vieler Flüchtlinge

Politisch und medial steht das Thema Flüchtlinge in Europa weit oben auf der Agenda. In der Diskussion um die Verteilung von Flüchtlingen innerhalb der Europäischen Union stehen aber oftmals nationalstaatliche Interessen und Zahlen im Vordergrund. Leicht vergisst man da, dass diese Menschen meist tragische, persönliche Schicksale und Geschichten erlitten haben. Wie jene Asylsuchenden, die in Malta am Arbeitsstrich ihr Überleben sichern. Von Europa fühlen sie sich im Stich gelassen. „Wirklich interessieren tun sich die wenigsten für uns“, sagt Joseph, ein Flüchtling aus Eritrea im Gespräch mit der APA in Malta. Hoffnungslos überfordert sei die maltesische Regierung, aber wohl auch die gesamte EU, meint der Mittdreißiger. Weil sie vom Staat nur bis zu 300 Euro pro Monat – wenn überhaupt – erhalten, versuchen viele der Flüchtlinge, auf den Straßen Tagesjobs zu ergattern.

Amnesty International: Automatic migrant detention breach of Malta’s human rights obligations

The automatic detention of undocumented migrants for up to 18 months and of asylum seekers for up to 12 months is “in breach of Malta’s international human rights obligations”, human rights experts have warned. In its annual ‘State of the World’s Human Rights’ report, human rights organisation Amnesty International said that Malta’s search and rescue operations at sea, limited at disembarking refugees and migrants in its territory, is too “restrictive”.
