Hawke's Bay Today - - World -

Hu­man rights and mi­grant wel­fare groups are urg­ing Greece to scrap its part of a deal be­tween the Euro­pean Union and Turkey, de­signed to re­duce unchecked mi­gra­tion to Europe from the east. In a state­ment yesterday, 20 groups sharply crit­i­cised the win­ter liv­ing con­di­tions in

Greece’s east­ern Aegean is­land mi­grant camps, where asy­lum­seek­ers are held un­der the 2016 agree­ment. The state­ment called for all camp res­i­dents to be moved to main­land Greece or other EU coun­tries.
