It is unacceptable for Mr. Mitsotakis to use the Summit of Southern European Countries to brag about the country’s ‘policy of active deterrence’, at a time when a few months ago 600 people drowned within the search and rescue area of ​​Greece, in which they were for 13 hours without being given a single life jacket“, says SYRIZA in a statement.

He notes that “equally unacceptable is the fact that neither responsibilities have been assigned for this tragedy, nor conclusions have been sought about what needs to be done to prevent it from happening again.”

SYRIZA-PS emphasizes that “the protection of Greece’s borders must be ensured with respect to international law and the defense of any life threatened. And certainly by dealing with the refugee/immigrant issue at the European and Euro-Turkish level».

He points out that “we will never accept the silencing of this case that Mr. Mitsotakis is trying to impose in order to legitimize his policy».
