Construction of closed migrant camps in Greece begins in March



Construction of closed migrant camps on several Greek islands in the Aegean will begin in MARCH to control the movement of asylum seekers, Migration Minister Notis Mitarachi said.

The camps, which will accommodate 20,000 asylum seekers for a maximum of three months, will be located on the islands of Lesbos, Samos, Kios, Kos and Leros, the minister said in an interview with Skai radio. They should be operational this summer.



Until now, asylum seekers could enter and leave the camp and move freely on the islands. Following violent incidents among migrants, the Conservative government of Prime Minister Kiriakos Micotakis has decided to further control the newcomers to the Aegean islands.

Speeding up asylum procedures

Those housed in these closed centers will be entitled to controlled exits for a limited time, Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas said.

Faced with an increase in migrant arrivals, the Micotakis government, which took office last summer, has decided to expedite asylum procedures to return those who are not eligible to their homelands or neighboring Turkey.

“We want to increase the number of returns to Turkey and achieve 200 returns a week,” Minister Mitarachi said.

According to UNHCR, nearly 41,000 asylum seekers have been crammed into camps in the Greek islands, with a capacity of 6,200.

A UNHCR representative in Greece said the construction of the new centers would take time, but most importantly find a quick solution to the unacceptable overcrowding of the island.

In recent months, there have been more protests by residents and local authorities opposing the construction of these camps. Asylum seekers also protested in early February over poor conditions and clashes between migrants and police forces erupted.
