2.5.10 Fulfilling obligations of relocations

In Commission v Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic (Joined cases C-715/17, C-718/17 and C-719/17), the CJEU upheld actions brought by the European Commission for the failure of Czechia, Hungary and Poland to fulfil their obligations within the EU relocation mechanism. The CJEU noted that the three Member States had infringed Council Decision No 2015/1601 on the mandatory relocation of 120,000 asylum applicants from Greece and Italy. In addition, the CJEU found that Czechia and Poland infringed earlier Council Decision No 2015/1523 (by which Hungary was not bound) for the voluntary relocation of 40,000 applicants from Greece and Italy.
