Citizens Protection Minister states: "I will not accept red zones in Athens"

“I will not accept red zones in Athens” Citizens Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis said in an interview published on Monday in the daily newspaper “TA NEA”.  He announced that controls at Greek borders will be intensified and the international law on illegal migrants’ readmission will be fully implemented.
Greece is not a ‘fenceless land’. It is a modern country, an open, hospitable and democratic society with sensitivity and understanding for people seeking a new homeland. But there are limits. Our top priority is to guarantee security and quality of life to the Greek citizen and to those who want to respect the laws of the Greek state,” underlined Papoutsis.
Referring to existing problems in districts of Athens that have lately been the scenes of violence among migrant groups, Papoutsis stressed that lawlessness is not acceptable.  He stated: “I will not allow red zones in the city of Athens. I pledge that Athens’ neighborhoods will become humane again” adding that what comes foremost is clean and safe living conditions for all city residents.
