Greece, EU Have Legal Case Against Turkey

Greece and the EU have a legal case against Turkey’s violation of the refugee deal, says Todd Carney, a Harvard graduate and specialist in international law.

Though Turkey has not formally withdrawn from the agreement, Turkey’s action in permitting refugees to go through to Europe is a clear violation of the agreement. There are a myriad of ways to try to hold Turkey accountable.

Turkey is letting more migrants go into Greece, which created an overflow of refugees into Greece. The refugees cannot go beyond Greece because they are not allowed to move freely in the EU without permission of the EU government.

Though Turkey did reduce the numbers of migrants going to the EU, thousands of refugees still made it to Greece making the refugee crisis worst.
