ČRo Radiožurnál | How can EU interior ministers adjust the rules for returning failed asylum seekers?

The attack on two football fans in Belgium has exposed the inefficiencies and flaws in Belgium's migration policy. How can EU interior ministers adjust the rules on returning failed asylum seekers? Our deputy director, Viktor Daněk, commented on the topic in the Odpolední publicistika programme.

"I consider the attack on the two Swedish citizens to be a flagrant failure of the Belgian authorities, who are responsible for ensuring that EU rules and national laws are applied in practice, and this must be emphasised. The fact that the perpetrator in question had been refused asylum from several countries shows how wide the problem is and that the Belgian authorities are certainly not alone in this."
