Roads to Migrate - Greece and Frozen to Death Refugees, Gizem Dik Hosts Selim Vatandaş

In the first episode of the Roads to Migrate, Gizem Dik hosts Selim Vatandaş, from the International Refugee Rights Association Reporting Department, to talk about the push-backs in Greece border. According to Vatandaş, Greece is violating human rights by pushing refugees back by the excessive power. there is no doubt that it violates international conventions to which Greece is a party, especially the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Legal Status of Refugees, the European Convention on Human Rights and the Dublin Convention. People who froze to death are victims of Europe's inhuman and unlawful treatment. Especially since the Greek military confiscated their valuables, clothes and identity documents.

At least 22 irregular migrants have been found frozen to death near the Greek-Turkish border after Greek border officials stripped them of their clothes and pushed them back to Turkish territory, local authorities said on February 2, 2022.
