BRUSSELS: The European Commission warned Malta on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) that it could not expel migrants landing on its shores in boats leaving from Libya. Under European Union (EU) and international obligations “all people arriving in EU territory are entitled to file an asylum request and to have a proper assessment of their situation,” EU’s Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem said in a statement.
