"The European Commission has chose to refer the case to the European court of justice against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic for failure to fulfil their obligations under migration", - he said.
The European Commission is to sue Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic at the European Court of Justice (ECJ) for refusing to take in asylum seekers. The EU's executive Commission sought reasons why but was given no satisfactory explanations.
The EU took the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland to the bloc's top court on December 7 over their refusal to accept quotas for asylum-seekers, setting up a new clash between Brussels and key eastern states.
In its statement, the unelected Commission said that the Visegrad nations of Central Europe "remain in breach of their legal obligations" and "have given no indication that they will contribute to the implementation of the relocation decision".
The Czech Republic has not relocated anyone since August 2016 and not made any new pledges for over a year.
The contentious scheme, which was introduced at the height of the refugee crisis in 2015, was focused on 'burden-sharing, ' meaning that 160,000 refugees should be relocated across these countries to ease the burden on Greece and Italy.
The Commission also said all other member states "have relocated and pledged in the past months" whereas Hungary has not taken any action since the scheme began.
The commission said Hungary's education law "disproportionally restricts European Union and non-EU universities in their operations and needs to be brought back in line with European Union law". With over 32,000 persons having been relocated so far, there are still eligible applicants in Italy and Greece that should be relocated as a matter of priority.

It said in a statement that it was suing Hungary as the education law "disproportionally restricts European Union and non-EU universities in their operations and needs to be brought back in line with European Union law".

The European Parliament also voted to start an EU sanctions procedure over Warsaw's controversial judicial reforms that could eventually suspend Polish voting rights in the bloc.
