Closure of "transit camps"

The history of the latest tensions between the EU and Hungary dates back to last May when Budapest was condemned by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) for the systematic detention since 2017, in two “transit camps” at its southern border, of people seeking international protection. This decision is then qualified as “aggression of Brussels” by Viktor Orban who nevertheless agreed to close these controversial transit camps and had around 300 asylum seekers transferred to reception centers open inside the country. Conservative and anti-migrant Prime Minister Viktor Orban has then further tightened in recent weeks his migration policy, which was already among the strictest in Europe.

Brussels has so far sent a letter of formal notice to Hungary. Budapest has two months to respond to the arguments raised by the Commission. Otherwise, the latter may send it a reasoned opinion, that is to say a formal request to comply with Union law. If the response remains unsatisfactory, Brussels could subsequently decide to refer the matter to the Court of Justice of the European Union. In the meantime there are hardly any asylum seekers in Hungary.
