Migrants are using children ‘as human shields for men with iPhones’ to justify arriving in Europe, says Czech Republic’s president

The President of the Czech Republic has accused migrants and refugees ‘with iPhones’ of exploiting their children to get asylum in the EU.

President Milos Zeman claimed that migrants are not in desperate need, but are economically wealthy and are using their children in order to gain sympathy from Europe.

His outburst comes just days after the United Nation’s human rights chief accused Prague of systematically detaining migrants and refugees in degrading conditions to put off others.
