Tagi: ue

Polish authorities undertook to receive 6 182 people from Greece and Italy in the period of two years under relocation procedure. Draft Regulation of the Council of Ministers in this case shows that in 2016, under relocation, Poland should receive max. 400 people. It means that in 2017, to fulfil the obligation, Polish authorities should receive approx. 5800 foreigners which may be difficult to execute. Concerns of the Commissioner for Human Rights apply also to the amount provided for integration of immigrants and execution of school liability by children. The opinion of the Commissioner for Human Rights is presented in the application to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Administration
