Poland’s Prime Minister Beata Szydlo said on September 6 said his country will continue to refuse to accept migrants under the European Union’s relocation scheme, despite a ruling by the bloc’s highest court saying this is not possible.

“I was convinced that such a decision would be made [by the court], but this absolutely does not change the stance of the Polish government with respect to migration policy,” Szydlo told reporters on the sidelines of a business conference.

As reported by the Reuters news agency, the European Union’s highest court has also dismissed complaints by Slovakia and Hungary about EU migration policy.
