International Reports Condemning Greece

In a report entitled “Return of Migrants Procedures”, published on June 21, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the rights of migrants, Felipe Gonzalez Morales, revealed that at least 17,000 migrants trying to reach Greece by sea were forcibly returned to Turkey during the years 2020-2021.

Morales explained that returning refugees and migrants has become a state policy in European countries, and that this practice continues despite warnings from international organizations, warning the international community of the consequences of attempts to cover up these measures. Especially in Greece, which the report devoted a lot of space to in this regard.

Greek border guards are not the only responsible for these violations, although most of them are taking place with their intervention, as numerous reports provide evidence of the involvement of the elements of the European Agency for Border Protection “Frontex” in these sea pursuits, which in most cases end with the sinking of refugee boats.
