Migration strategy still in debate

Hungary alongside Slovakia and Poland required the movement arrangement to be rejected, however their protest got a misfortune from an ECJ lawful consultant on Wednesday.
The promoter general suggested that the complaint be tossed out, halfway on the grounds that the arrangement mitigated “the significant weight on the haven frameworks of Italy and Greece following the relocation emergency in the mid-year of 2015”.
