According to the Hungarian government the European Commission is putting pressure on some countries, while most of the member states failed to implement the quota decision.

"The infringement procedure related to the refugee quotas is major exertion of pressure on the part of the European Commission, but this is a consequence of the fact that the distribution mechanism is not working, and most of the Member States failed to implement it", Justice Minister László Trócsányi said on Wednesday.

The European Commission announced on Tuesday that it is instituting infringement procedures against Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic for not implementing the former decision on the setting up of the mandatory EU refugee quotas.
