SYNYPARXI and COMMUNICATION in the AEGEAN (Co-existence and communication in the Aegean) has alerted the Greek Government to the continuing difficulties and lack of support towards unaccompanied minors in Moria. (here for the Greek version)
To The Deputy Minister of National Defence Mr. Vitsas.
Subject: Unaccompanied minors in Moria.
The recent outbreaks of violence in Moria exposed 90 unaccompanied minors, detained in the facilities to potential physical harm. The minors were transferred in a secure space for the night (PIKPA facility). Evidently, it is not advisable that they return to the Moria hotspot. It should also have become clear by now that they cannot remain in the PIKPA area and the construction of a separate facility for minors has been apparently cancelled.
Unaccompanied minors need to be transferred to appropriate facilities in mainland Greece as a matter of priority.
Our initiative has been supporting these children for several months now in all possible ways. PLEASE SAVE THE CHILDREN.
