EU's refugee relocation plan faces legal reckoning

The EU's top court rules Wednesday on the legality of a controversial quota scheme that Brussels launched two years ago to force member states to admit thousands of asylum seekers.

The European Court of Justice will issue its verdict on a legal challenge that Hungary and Slovakia lodged against the scheme that requires bloc members to take in Syrians and others from overstretched Greece and Italy.

The European Union approved the scheme as part of efforts to boost EU solidarity and end the chaos generated by Europe's worst migrant crisis since World War II.
