  • EU threatens Poland with sanctions over refugees
The European Union has again threatened to sanction Hungary and Poland unless they begin taking in the share of refugees.

The EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos said on Tuesday that the pace of accepting refugees by certain EU member states is insufficient.

“The majority of the member states make efforts in the spirit of European Solidarity – others do not, therefore I call on Poland and Hungary who have not relocated a single person ... to start doing so right now,” said Avramopoulos.

“If no action is taken by them before the next Commission report in June, the Commission will not hesitate to make use of its powers under the treaties and to open infringement procedures,” added Avramopoulos.
