Palestinian Family Released from Greek Custody after 60 Days

The Greek authorities released on Saturday, November 23, 120 migrants, including Palestinians from Syria, who have been detained on Rhodes Island for nearly 60 days.

The freed migrants include Palestinians, Iraqis, and Syrians.

The list of released migrants includes Palestinian refugee from Syria Thaer Tamim, along with his wife and two children, who reached Simi Island on September 22, 2019, coming from Turkey. The family was transferred to Rhodes Island after their health had taken a turn for the worse.

On September 26, Thaer was sent to a detention center on Rhodes Island while his wife Rima Abdul Kader and two children Abdul Rahman and Bilsan were taken to Lalisos Police Station on Rhodes Island.

The family had been subjected to mistreatment by the prison authorities. Wardens refused to give them winter blankets and drinking water. They were kept behind prison bars without charges. Authorities claimed that they were kept in jail because of over crowdedness in refugee camps and migrant reception centers.

Thaer and his family had also been left without treatment. Thaer, who is diagnosed with urinary tract disorders and severe inflammations, got his teeth falling out and sustained right hip fractures. His children suffered weight loss, anemia, and vitamin D deficiency.

In recent years, Greek refugee camps have reportedly been running at three times their capacity. Overpopulated refugee camps cause a shortage of resources, not least healthcare.

Last month, UNICEF warned that the number of unaccompanied migrant minors staying in overcrowded reception centers on the Greek islands exceeds 1,100, the highest level since the peak of the refugee crisis in early 2016, calling on European countries to do more to protect vulnerable children.

Palestinian refugees from Syria continue to risk their lives onboard the “death boats” to Greece, rummaging around for a momentary respite from the daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction.

AGPS has kept record of the death of dozens of refugees onboard Greece-bound ships. Several others have been arrested by Turkish coast guards.

Activists estimate that around 4,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria are taking cover on such Greek islands as Lesbos, Mytilene, Chios, Leros, and Kos, among other areas.
