Greek NGOs ask the Supreme Court to rescue 50 migrants stranded on the island of Evros

On Tuesday, two Greek NGOs filed a complaint with the Greek Supreme Court calling for the rescue of 50 Syrian migrants, including three pregnant women and 12 children, from an islet in the Evros River on Greece’s border with Turkey.

The Greek Council for Refugees and Human Rights HumanRights 360 said that among the 50 migrants is an elderly woman. They are all “stuck on an island in the Evros River, despite the decision of the European Court of Human Rights that they should be helped, not expelled from Greece.”

However, according to the NGO, Syrian citizens “were pushed aside one day before the deadline for the court’s ruling, and the Chief Prosecutor of the Supreme Court was briefed on the case” and stuck between the borders of the two countries.

Amnesty International also issued an urgent appeal to rescue stranded migrants, collecting signatures to present them to the Minister of Civil Protection.
