Disinfo: Czech Minister of Interior supported Dublin IV

The Czech Minister of Interior voted for reform of the EU asylum system (the so called Dublin IV). It will result in the removal of control of migration from Czech national authorities.

Disproof

This claim was denied by Czech MoI. No voting took place regarding Dublin IV, negotiations are ongoing.

The Dublin IV proposal retains the link between responsibility in the field of asylum and the respect by Member States of their obligations in terms of protection of the external border, subject to exceptions designed to protect family unity and the best interests of the child. The current criteria for the allocation of responsibility are essentially preserved, but targeted changes are proposed, notably to strengthen family unity under Dublin by extending the family definition.

Disproof

The story comes from Berliner Express, a site that clearly states it is satire. It is not the first time that Contra Magasin spreads disinformation.
