According to his statement, the Minister of Migration Policy and Asylum provides evidence that shows inconsistencies in the case of the 38 migrants on an island in Evros. Notis Mitarakisto the prosecutor of the Supreme Court Isidoros Dogiakos.
The purpose of today’s visit by the minister to the country’s first class public prosecutor is for the judiciary to take charge and examine all these elements, in order to establish whether criminal acts have been committed by any person who may have been involved in this case.
The Minister of Migration Policy and Asylum passed the door of the Supreme Court at 12 noon and in his statement said:
“We all watched the incident with the 38 migrants who were trapped, according to their declaration, on an island in Turkish territory. These people, as you know, on August 14 were found in Greek territory, on August 15 they were found by the Greek police and taken to the KYT police station where they submitted an asylum request. Whether or not they are entitled to stay in Greece or the European Union will be decided by the asylum service. Beyond that, if offenses have been committed either by themselves, but mainly by third parties, it is something that must be examined by the Court. That is why I asked today to meet the Prosecutor of the Supreme Court to present to him the inconsistencies that have emerged from the examination of the case so far. The most important thing, as I said in the House, is that the family, who said that a five-year-old child had died, which of course moved us all, had apparently said that it consisted of four children, who were all safe. in our country”.
Subsequently, Mr. Mitarakis referred to other cases as well, stating, among other things, that “it was also stated that there were people in the group with health issues, this was not confirmed”.
As he noted in conclusion: “There are various questions, there is information about the involvement of third parties. I will present all this to the Justice and from then on the matter now concerns the Justice.”
