The Court of Justice of the European Union on 19 January decided that EU member states can reject asylum seekers with links to terror activities. According to the court this does not have to mean direct connections, but even logistical support or recruitment.

The decision comes amid heightened concerns about terrorism across Europe and the deterioration of the IS position in Iraq and Syria. States should be able to address the possible infiltration of Islamists into migrant camps. However, their deportation continues to be problematic, which was highlighted by the December terror attack in Berlin, where the assailant was a rejected asylum seeker from Tunisia.
