Germany's Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble and a senior Bavarian politician criticized Greece Sunday over the way it is managing its role in Europe's biggest migration crisis since World War II.Schaeuble, who has clashed repeatedly with Greek officials this year over economic policy, told Bild am Sonntag that Athens has for years ignored the rules that oblige migrants to file for asylum in the European Union country they arrive in first.He said German courts had decided some time ago that refugees were not being treated humanely in Greece and could therefore not be sent back there.The EU's border agency Frontex has agreed to increase its presence in Greece at the end of the month, while European guards will help Greeks manage their frontier with Macedonia following concern over Athens' commitment to controlling migration matters.Regardless, a recent survey showed that nearly 70 percent of Czechs oppose the arrival of migrants and refugees in their country.
