France denies working on proposal to ease EU deportation rules

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - France denies involvement in drafting any suggestions for easing EU human rights safeguards to make it easier to deport asylum seekers, a spokesman for the French mission to the European Union said on Tuesday.

“France categorically denies having worked on such a document,” the spokesman said in response to a Reuters report on a working paper prepared by German officials.
