Turkey: The EU continues its silence on the injustice of refugees


A spokesman for Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party, Omer Celik, said that the European Union maintains its silence regarding the injustice suffered by refugees, as well as the threat to journalists.

“Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mishotakis continues his false statements towards refugees and constantly weaves slanders against Turkey,” Celik said in a tweet on Thursday.


He pointed out that the unjust treatment of the Greek forces towards refugees has been documented many times, pointing to the silence of the European Union regarding these repeated violations on a daily basis.

He added that Greece’s violations towards refugees have reached dangerous proportions, adding: “Our president (Erdogan) has constantly opposed these violations, and has constantly refuted the Greek allegations.”

He added that the Greek forces were committing humanitarian crimes by puncturing refugee boats and leaving them to die in the sea.

He reported that the Dutch journalist, Ingeborg Bogel, began receiving many threats and had to leave Greece because of this.


This is after she asked Michotakes at a press conference, “Why do you lie about paying and returning refugee boats?”

He added, “All this took place in a member state of the European Union, and the institutions of the Union maintain their silence regarding the violations against refugees and the threats against journalists.”
