Greece to take back ‘Dublin case’ by end October

Greece is expected to accept back the first asylum seeker since the reinstatement of the so-called Dublin Regulation – requiring any asylum bid to be processed by the EU nation in which the applicant first arrives – by the end of October, reports said Wednesday.

The return will take place after Greek authorities accepted a request from Berlin, according to the same reports.

Dublin transfers to Greece have been suspended since 2011, following two judgments by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) which identified “systemic deficiencies” in the Greek asylum system.
