Brussels-City will open a reception centre for transmigrants this Monday.
City councillor Karine Lalieux blamed the federal government for losing control of the situation that has seen migrants en route to the UK sleeping in the cityâs Maximilian Park and other areas.
The federal government âhas not done anything to deal with the transmigrants in Brussels,â she said. âWe have rented building in Evere to open a centre for migrants.
This is actually the work of the federal and regional governments, but they are doing nothing.â
The centre will fulfil two needs, said Lalieux. âFirst, we want to prevent a âjungleâ in Maximilian Park,â she said, referring to the refugee camp in Calais. âAnd second, we want to provide humanitarian assistance to the migrantsâ.
