The European Parliament’s quota decisions contradict the “Convention on the Status of Refugees” adopted by all UN member states. Article 26 on Freedom of Movement states that “Each Contracting State shall allow refugees lawfully in their territory to choose a place of residence and move freely within its territory, subject to certain exceptions laid down in proceedings under the same circumstances as foreigners”. This means that nobody, not even the European Parliament, should be able to redistribute refugees.
The EU asylum policy's objectives are to develop a common policy on asylum, subsidiary protection and temporary protection, with a view to offering an appropriate status to all third-country nationals who need international protection, and to ensure that the principle of non-refoulement is observed. This policy must be consistent with the 1951 Geneva Convention and the 1967 Protocol thereto. www.europarl.europa.eu/atyourservice/en/displayFtu.html?ftuId=FTU_5.12.2.html,
The freedom of movement as defined in Article 26 of the Convention on the Status of Refugees clearly states that each state must ensure that a refugee who is legally present on its territory has freedom of movement within the borders of that state. This means that the Czech Republic must ensure that a refugee who is legally resident in the Czech Republic can move freely within the Czech Republic.
