Greek au­thor­i­ties over­saw the vol­un­tary re­turn of 1,645 peo­ple to their home­lands in July, ac­cord­ing to data pub­lished yes­ter­day. The repa­tri­a­tions were made via a vol­un­tary scheme run by the In­ter­na­tional Or­ga­ni­za­tion for Mi­gra­tion, as well as through re­turns car­ried out by the Greek po­lice. Just over half of the mi­grants (872) were re­turned to Al­ba­nia. This was fol­lowed by 297 re­turns to Pak­istan and 98 to Al­ge­ria. A to­tal of 11,083 mi­grants have been repa­tri­ated via th­ese meth­ods since the start of the year.
