Calais rejects court order for better refugee facilities amid fears of ‘new jungle'


Calais rejects court order for better refugee facilities amid fears of ‘new jungle'

Local judges upheld the decision made by another court in Lille last month, ordering officials to set up drinking fountains, toilets and showers for migrants.

According to the court, migrants are living in “a state of deprivation and exhaustion” and are subjected to “inhuman and degrading treatments” unacceptable in a democracy.

Calais authorities face a fine of £89 (€100) per day if they fail to abide by the ruling.

It is estimated that there are between 400 to 600 migrants in the hub town.
