Czech oligarch and Finance Secretary Babiš wants to sue the European Commission re the refugee quotas

Czech politicians have rejected the European Commission proposal to re-distribute applicants for asylum according to a unified methodology. According to the Czech PM Bohuslav Sobotka, immigration policy must remain under the control of individual EU member states. Czech president Miloš Zeman has rejected the European Commission proposal as "refugee quotas in disguise", Czech oligarch, Finance Secretary and Deputy PM Andrej Babiš wants to sue the European Commission.

According to PM Sobotka, the Brussels proposal is "absolutely unacceptable" for the Czech government. "It is counterproductive for the European Commission to table again the dead proposal of permanent quotas. The Commission must know that the member states will not approve this proposal," said Sobotka, adding that the Czech government will not agree with any system of compulsory refugee quotas. The Brussels proposal has also been rejected by the Czech President Zeman and the Czech Interior Minister Chovanec.
