30 reception centres for illegal migrants
27/ 03/ 2012AMNA--The government on Monday announced the creation of 30 guarded reception centres for illegal migrants in 10 of the country’s 13 administrative regions, with the exception of the regions of the Aegean and Ionian islands and the large island of Crete.
The announcement came after Citizen Protection Minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis met with the regional governors, seeking a solution to the pressing and explosive illegal migration problem in the country.
Each of the reception centres will have a capacity of 1,000 individuals, while a total of 250 million euro in EU funds will be used for this purpose by 2013. Chryssohoidis informed the regional governors that within the next 15 days they should suggest the appropriate spaces that could be used as reception centres for illegal migrants.
The minister stated that if the regional governors have no suggestions a decision will be made through a legislative act to be presented to the cabinet in cooperation with the ministry of defence.
