Response of the Minister for Migration and Asylum Mr. Notis Mitarachi to publicatiοns that reiterate allegations of pushbacks

“We strongly deny these allegations. Greek borders are EU borders and we operate with in international and European law to protect them. Illegal sea crossings are highly dangerous and they should be prevented in accordance with the 2016 Joint Statement, which the EU needs to ensure is properly enforced. Europe remains the target of criminal gangs who are exploiting people who wish to enter the EU illegally. We make no apology for our continued focus on breaking up these human trafficking operations, and protecting Europe’s border.”
