EU needed a fire to fund transfer of 400 Moria minors to Greece’s mainland

It needed a devastating fire in the overcrowded Moria camp to wake up the European Union. EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Ylva Johansson said on Wednesday that the EU will fund the transport of 400 unaccompanied minors to the mainland.

“The safety and shelter of all people in Moria is the priority,” Johansson posted on her Twitter account. “My thoughts and sympathies are with the people of Lesbos and in particular the migrants and staff working in Moria. I am in contact with the Greek Minister and local authorities about the fire.” she said.

Did Johansson already find accommodation places for the 400 minors in camps on Greece’s mainland? What will happen with the rest of the people?

These are questions that will probably will remain unanswered, just like the one: why she did not do that a week or a month or 6 months ago?…

The fire in Moria on Tuesday night largely destroyed the camp in- and outside and forced some 13,000 people, children, elderly, women, men to the streets.
