He spoke after the EU executive sued Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic in the European Court of Justice on Thursday for their refusal to host these migrants. "This is why the commission has chose to move to the next stage of the infringement procedure and refer the three member states to the Court of Justice of the European Union".
