Hundreds of Palestine Refugees Threatened with Refoulement in Greece

The Immigration Department of Greece announced its decision to force refugees who have obtained Greek visas since July 31, 2017 out of their homes and shelters. Rents will be shelled out via European funds and the refugees’ allowances will be suspended in three months.

Sometime earlier, the government of Greece sent notifications to hundreds of asylum-seekers who were granted “refugee status” to evacuate their European-funded shelters.

Activists said the policy dovetails the country’s attempt to rein in the influx of migrants and overcrowdings on its islands.

Human rights groups said the new decision comes in line with the EU commitment to fund the UNHCR’s relief and housing program for asylum-seekers who have not yet received replies over their applications for asylum.

The activists further warned of the fallouts of the decision, which they said will result in increasing numbers of homeless refugees who will be left with neither food nor shelter and be denied their basic human rights.

Palestinian refugees who have fled war-stricken zones to Greece have been denied their rights to visas and prevented from accessing vital facilities.
