President Katerina Sakellaropoulou has received a group of women, attorneys, judges and MPs from Afghanistan at the presidential mansion on Tuesday.
“Greece’s response to requests for hosting vulnerable Afghani refugees was immediate,” she noted, “and it highlighted the significance it attaches to the humanitarian aspect of the migration crisis, in a spirit of solidarity.”
26 female judges and attorneys and their families arrived in Athens from Tbilisi on October 1, partly with the intervention of the Greek president. MPs had arrived in late September.
They are housed with the support of the International Organisation for Migration while awaiting relocation.
