Ombudsman’s letter to PM on the emergency situation at the border

The Ombudsman has sent a letter to the Prime Minister regarding the amendments to Cabinet Order No 518 of 10 August 2021 extending the emergency situation in certain municipalities at the border.

The Ombudsman has asked the Cabinet to assess whether extending the emergency situation without changing the other provisions of the Order, in particular those relating to access to the asylum procedure, is the only possible solution.
