MOSCOW (Sputnik) — EU leaders reached the agreement on the action plan with Ankara on Friday. The European Union pledged to provide 3 billion euros (over $3.3 billion) to Turkey to help it deal with the undocumented migrants, with the provision of an additional 3 billion-euro allocation among other possible measures.
"Asylum seekers have a fundamental right to have their individual asylum claims reviewed in a safe country. Under this agreement there is a genuine risk that people will be denied the right to an individual assessment because it treats all refugees under a mass agreement," Louise Gunven, lawyer and board member of Lawyers Without Borders said, as quoted by The Local news outlet.
The EU-Turkey agreement, which is taking effect on Sunday, envisages, in particular, Turkey taking back all undocumented migrants who enter Greece from Turkey and sends in return approved Syrian refugees on a one-for-one principle.
