ČT24 | The position of the far right in the EU elections

Horizont ČT24 | Immigration centre in Albania

A large-scale immigration centre is to be operational in Albania from August. Rome is building it to take illegal migrants intercepted at sea out of its territory until the asylum process is completed. Critics say the plan is unfair to migrants because it will disproportionately prolong their stay in the European Union when they are assessed. Is this an effective solution or is it just part of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni's election campaign? Viktor Daněk, deputy director of EUROPEUM Institute, commented for Horizont ČT24.

Horizont ČT24 | Imigrační centrum v Albánii

Od srpna má v Albánii fungovat rozsáhlé imigrační centrum. Řím ho staví, aby nelegální migranty zachycené na moři převezl mimo své území dokud neproběhne azylové řížení. Podle kritiků je plán vůči migrantům nespravedlivý, protože v Evropské unii při posuzování jejich pobyt neúměrně prodlouží. Jde o efektivní řešení nebo je to jen součástí předvolební kampaně italské premiérky Giorgie Meloniové? Pro Horizont ČT24 komentoval zástupce ředitele Institutu EUROPEUM Viktor Daněk.
