Dublin regulation kills!

category international | racism & migration related issues | news report author Monday June 23, 2014 23:35author by Stop dublin III Report this post to the editors

Three videos testify to the tortures inflicted by the border Italian police upon refugees, on their entrance in Schengen space in order to take their fingerprints. This is the Dublin III system, and evidence of the torture and violation of refugee rights it imposes on those fleeing for their safety and their future. Italy is only one of several border countries using such methods to comply with EU Dublin III.

One of the principal aims of the Dublin Regulation is to prevent an applicant from submitting applications in multiple Member States. Another aim is to reduce the number of "orbiting" asylum seekers, who are shuttled from member state to member state. However since the country that a person first arrived in is responsible for dealing with the application, this puts excessive pressure on border areas, where states are often least able to offer asylum seekers support and protection. Currently, those being transferred under Dublin are not always able to access an asylum procedure. This puts people at risk of being returned to persecution.
