Refugees: Thousands of Asylum Requests to the Greek Authorities

refugees idomeniThousands of asylum requests have been submitted to the Greek authorities from the side of the refugees, so that they would not be led back to Turkey.
Mega Channel reported, that out of 3,000 refugees who have reached Mytilene, 2,850 asylum requests have been submitted within the last two days. Frontex executives who are going to deal with the requests are not going to be in Athens until Wednesday, though. Until then, the number of the requests is expected to be multiplied, a fact that is going to further complicate the procedures.
In the meantime, in Chios and Souda, the High Commission of UNO for the refugees, is providing information on the issue, with the contribution of volunteers from the METAdrasi organization, with the aim of facilitating refugees to submit their requests for further staying in Greece.
