Bulgaria: Refugees Treated Like Criminals - Refugees landing in Bulgaria regularly spend their first days there in detainment camps. This is a clear breach of EU law by a country that hopes to join Europe's passport-free Schengen area soon.

Because the processing of applications for asylum is slow, refugees often spend months in the camps.
