STRASBOURG/BRUSSELS – The rules for the reception of asylum seekers in the EU to be equalised. Asylum seekers get from the first day the right to language classes, children must be within two months to school and there are safeguards laid down for vulnerable groups, including LHBTI’ers, victims of torture and refugees with certain beliefs.
That are the European Parliament and the EU-countries in principle agreed. Sophie in ’t Veld (D66), on behalf of the parliament on the revision of the EU-opvangrichtlijn with the European Commission and the member states negotiated, is happy with the result.
“Today we are making an important step for an effective and decent European asylum system. By an end to the large differences in collect data between the member states, we make successful integration a bigger chance of success and we prevent asylum seekers from country to country in the EU.”
