The European Commission announced on Wednesday that is has sent Letters of Formal Notice to Latvian and several other EU member states on failure to fully implement two directives in relation to asylum seekers.

The European Commission has sent Letters of Formal Notice to 18 member states, including Latvia, for having failed to communicate national measures taken to fully transpose the revised Asylum Procedures Directive. The Commission has sent Letters of Formal Notice to 19 member states, including Latvia, for not having communicated the national measures taken to fully transpose the updated Reception Conditions Directive. Letters of Formal Notice are the first formal step of an infringement procedure.
