They will be referred to the European Court of Justice for "non-compliance with their legal obligations on relocation", the commission said in a statement, referring to the three countries' staunch refusal to take part in an EU scheme forcing migrants on unwilling nations.

Last month the ECJ warned Warsaw to stop logging in one of Europe's last primeval forests "immediately" or face fines of up to 100,000 euros a day.

A relocation plan was launched by the European Union in 2015 in response to a large influx of migrants and refugees.

However, the Czech Republic has accepted only 12 of the 2,000 asylum-seekers it had been designated, while Hungary and Poland have received none. "This is why the commission has made a decision 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".

Broadcom Limited (AVGO) Analysts See $3.92 EPS
With 2.76 million avg volume, 1 days are for Broadcom Limited Ord (NASDAQ: AVGO)'s short sellers to cover AVGO's short positions. Broadcom has been working to convince investors that its offer of $70 a share provides the most value to shareholders.

If the member state still refuses to comply, the Commission may then decide to refer the case to the Court of Justice.

But, "the replies received were again found not satisfactory and the three countries have given no indication that they will contribute to the implementation of the relocation decision", the Commission said in a statement.

He said the quota system had fuelled anti-migrant sentiment and played into the hands of the far right.

In response to the migration crisis in 2015, the European Union adopted a decision to relocate asylum seekers who arrived in Italy and Greece, which were dealing with a massive inflow of migrants. Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said the government was not changing its policy on migrants.

Army Replaces Commander in War Against Boko Haram After Six Months

At the core of both laws are the Hungarian government's efforts to curtail the influence of Hungarian-American financier George Soros in Hungary.

In addition, the Commission also remains of the opinion that the new legislation runs counter to the right of academic freedom, the right to education and the freedom to conduct a business as provided by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the Union's legal obligations under global trade law (the General Agreement on Trade in Services, GATS, in the framework of the World Trade Organisation, WTO).

Prime Minister Viktor Orban considers Soros a key political foe, mainly due to their diverging views on migration.

The commission said the laws "indirectly discriminate and disproportionately restrict donations from overseas to civil society organisations".
