The great difficulty in access to the asylum procedure was the reason why our campaign was founded in 2012. Today, four years later, not only hasn’t this problem been solved but it has greatly deteriorated.
Even though the Asylum Service has already started operating since 2013, it had not been organized nor staffed in a way that it could provide easy access to the asylum procedure to all who wish to apply, as it is prescribed by the law. We note that, even though our organizations have repeatedly submitted to the Asylum Service suggestions aiming at resolving this problem, there was reluctance to engage in a serious dialogue and to find effective solutions.
