Slovakia has launched a legal challenge to the EU's plan to distribute 160,000 asylum-seekers among member states under a quota system, the country's prime minister said Wednesday.
"The Slovak republic has officially filed a lawsuit against the Council of the European Union to the highest court ... in Luxembourg," leftist Prime Minister Robert Fico said, adding that the suit challenges "so-called mandatory quotas" on refugee re-location adopted by the EU in September.
