EU commission keeps asylum report on Greece secret

"The European Commission is refusing to release a preliminary legal assessment into Greece's decision to temporarily shelve asylum applications."

"Greece froze applications for a month in early March, following Turkey's failed bid to use migrants as political leverage after sending thousands to its side of its shared border with Greece.

...The commission insisted it first needed to study the measure - a position it continues to maintain almost three weeks after Greece lifted the suspension on 1 April and in light of the current pandemic."
