Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:
The international aid organization Doctors Without Borders is pulling out a refugee center on Lesbos, because it has become “a prison“. Yesterday, the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR decided to limit its cooperation with the reception of refugees in closed camps.
The decision of the organizations is a major setback for the European Union, which late last week reached an agreement with Turkey on the return of refugees to Turkey. The Turkey deal specifically refers to cooperation by the UN organization.
Meanwhile, Save the Children as well has stopped cooperation as a protest against the prison camps.
The intention is that refugees immediately after arrival at the beach are taken to camps for registration and evaluation of their possible application for asylum. Those camps were closed a few days ago and are guarded draconically. …
MSF withdraws now from the camp Moria, “because refugee camps as a result of the EU-Turkey agreement have changed into deportation camps.” The organization does not want to participate in an “unfair and inhumane” system.
According to the UNHCR the measures of the agreement with Turkey have been implemented hastily without security guarantees for the refugees.
Until last weekend refugees could go freely in and out of Moria camp and take a ferry to the Greek mainland.
From there, most were trying to travel further to Western Europe, although they have been stopped for several weeks at the Greek-Macedonian border.
Refugee crisis: Aid organisations end activities in Greece over government’s ‘police-run’ detention centres. Under the migration deal between the EU and Ankara, virtually all those arriving on the Greek islands will be returned to Turkey: here.
