Refugee crisis: EU deal with ‘sultan Erdogan’ slammed by MEPS
By Josh Lowe

02/02/2016_Syria RefugeeThe European Union was, on Wednesday, accused of handing the “keys to the gates of Europe” to “Sultan Erdogan” as MEPs questioned Turkey’s human rights record. At a European parliament debate on Wednesday over an outline agreement that would see migrants and refugees returned from Europe to Turkey, leaders of some of the parliament’s largest political groups spoke out in criticism.


“I don’t deny that we need a practical and technical arrangement with Turkey,” said Guy Verhofstadt, leader of the centrist ALDE grouping which includes Britain’s Liberal Democrats, “[but] it is a deal...in which we outsource our problems.
 “We are giving in fact entrance keys, the keys to the gates of Europe, in the hands of Turkey, the successors of the Ottoman empire, to [Turkish President] Erdogan, I should even say maybe to Sultan Erdogan,” he said.

Under the terms of the proposed agreement, Turkey would take on some responsibility for processing refugees and determining which ones are fit to enter Europe.

“Turkey is a very poor member of the Geneva convention. They have not ratified a number of protocols,” Verhofstadt added.

Syed Kamall, the leader of the right-wing European Conservatives and Reformists group which includes the British Conservative Party, asked “even in desperate times should we just tear up our rules and international conventions?”

“Turkey itself is testing the EU,” he continued, adding that “those of us who believe in freedom of the press should be concerned” about the Turkish government’s recent decision to impose a new editor on the formerly critical newspaper Zaman.


The UN has said that the deal with Turkey—set to be finalized later this month— may be illegal . UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi reiterated the organization’s concerns in a speech at the European Parliament on Tuesday.


"I am deeply concerned about any arrangement that would involve the blanket return of anyone from one country to another without spelling out the refugee protection safeguards under international law," he said.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
