Conditions at Samos camp 'tragic', says Greek Refugee Council
The Greek Council for Refugees has released a damning report on the 'tragic' conditions at the new migrant camp on the island of Samos. Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis recently lauded the camp as 'impeccable'.
Migrants and refugees living at the recently opened new camp on the Greek island of Samos face isolation, social exclusion and confinement, as the camp "functions more like a prison" than a reception facility, according to a report released by the Greek Council for Refugees (GCR) in Mid-November.
The report comes after Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, speaking at a press conference on November 10, had called the facility on Samos "impeccable".
The newly-built reception and identification center on the Aegean Island of Samos had opened in September. It is one of five new so-called "closed and controlled" centers which Greece plans to build.
