‘These Problems Will Continue To Occur’ – UN High Commissioner For Refugees On Beating Up Migrants

Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, talks to DW about accusations of Greek police beating up migrants and illegally deporting them back to Turkey.

Reports say that Greek security forces physically assaulted migrants emerged earlier this year, when thousands gathered in border areas after Turkey encouraged them to travel to Europe.

But now DW and other investigative reporters have been able to confirm some stories of abuse and illegal deportations after tracking down victims in Turkey.

They allege Greek police arrested them without a warrant and forced them on to boats back to Turkey. {DW News}
