Finland reluctant to return refugees to Greece
Refugees coming to Finland through Greece often stay in Finland despite the Dublin regulations that would allow them to be returned to the country where they first entered the EU. Finland is reluctant to return refugees to Greece because of the questionable conditions the refugees would face in the Greek asylum system. Minors are not returned from Finland at all, and adults only if Finland obtains a confirmation from Greece of a proper asylum process and of the refugee’s right to take their case to the European Court of Human Rights.
