The European Court of Justice has ruled that Hungary, Poland and Czech Republic broke EU law for refusing migrants during the 2015 migration crisis.

The court stated that “they failed to fulfil their obligations under European Union law”.

It has been stated by the ECJ that fines may be possible.

Polish MP Dominik Tarczyński explained Poland’s refusal during the migrant crisis stating that extreme cultural differences and terrorism were the biggest threats to the country.
