Europe's asylum policy inhumane

The EU interior ministers in Brussels talked about the progress made in creating a joint asylum system last week. Up to now refugees have received too little support from the EU, Kiriakos Triandafillidis, Cypriot MEP for the left-wing ruling party AKEL, writes in the left-liberal daily Phileleftheros: "It is true that an application for political asylum can only be submitted within the European Union. But if we fail to recognise that the migration streams are mixed, consisting of both economic and political refugees, and if we don't differentiate between these two groups, we are condemning some people to death. Therefore it is extremely important that the so-called asylum package be revised and considered in the context of the European Union's immigration policy."
