It was a requirement of the European Union in exchange for the removal of the requirement for Serbian citizens to obtain a visa for a short stay in the Schengen area: Serbia was prevented from leaving its territory persons coming to ask asylum in EU countries, such persons together being referred to as “false asylum seekers”. This agreement was made in violation of fundamental rights of the persons concerned, be it to leave any country including his own or those guaranteed by the Geneva Convention on Refugees.
Chairman of the Commission on visa-free regime can therefore boast publicly reduction “false asylum seekers“. As a bonus, he asks Germany, which has already expelled thousands of Roma from Serbia and Kosovo, and has added Serbia to the list of safe countries of origin (which means the processing of applications for asylum under an accelerated procedure) to reduce the monthly allowance paid to asylum seekers and even shorten the procedure.
