The European Court of Justice has “fully rejected” the demand by Hungary and Slovakia to be excluded from EU’s refugees distribution scheme.

EU countries agreed in September 2015 to relocate 160,000 refugees who reached Greece and Italy over two years, but only around 24,000 people have been relocated so far, Beta reported on Wednesday, quoting AP.

Hungary and Poland are refusing to participate in the plan, “while so far Slovakia has accepted only a handful of refugees from Greece.”
