Thirty-five migrants will have to see their European dream ending forever. Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 26th 2016 they will be deported from the Greek island of Lesvos back to Turkey within the framework of the EU Deal with Turkey. According to local media, lesvosnews.net, the majority of these 35 migrants asked authorities to return to Turkey, as they cannot continue to reach their destination due to the borders closure.
Among the 35 migrants are reportedly also 7 so-called “hardcore” people responsible for the many tensions and incidents in the Moria detention center where the number of migrants and refugees who came to Greece after March 20th has reached approximately 4,000 people.
The detainees of Moria will be slowly released and allowed to freely move on the island, “because the detention limit of 25 days during which the asylum request procedure has to be concluded has expired for the majority of the migrants,” LesvosNews reports.
Today, Monday, Lesvos prepares to host another high-ranking visitor, the Queen of Jordan, Rania. She is expected to arrive at 12:30, visit the municipality hot sport of Kara Tepe, make a statement to reporters and leave the island at 2:30 in the afternoon.
