EU failing to rescue refugees from Greece -2

Filed under: , ,

After the closure of the Balkan corridor in March, Greece has become host to over 53,000 migrants and refugees desperate for a way out. Many have applied to an EU scheme that planned to relocate refugees from Greece to other parts of Europe, but deep flaws in the system are leaving families in limbo. Syrian civil engineer Rafed Al Kassmi, his Iraqi wife and his son have been ‘suspended’ in Athens for four months after Poland refused to relocate them. Yemeni student Waleed Al-Saidani is even more unlucky, he was also rejected by Poland and then his country was taken off the relocation list altogether. He is now thinking to return to war-torn Yemen. The head of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in Greece has called on EU states to urgently accept more refugees.
