In the dramatic and inhumane conditions at Molia refugee center in Lesvos, the German press is back.
The reason for the new answer, published in Frankfurter Rundschau's electronic edition, is a new report from Human Rights Watch, which warns of the inhumane conditions of Greek refugees. In view of the winter, living conditions for asylum seekers should be improved, Frankfurt says the daily call for the humanitarian organization. For a "threat of a humanitarian disaster in Moria", the German correspondent, based on HRW's findings, visited the center of Molia and spoke to refugees. FR writes that "in its latest report, HRW warns of" widespread humanitarian disaster "because the center of Moria is not resilient in the winter. Today there are over 6800 people, although the camp is designed for 3100 people. Thousands of people seeking protection in Europe are deprived of their most basic human rights, "says Tador Gardo in HRW.
He stressed that "EU-sponsored policies as asylum seekers were detained in Greek islands has made Lesvos an" open-air jail. "HRW spoke with 26 asylum seekers on the island. They saw Moria broken sewage pipes and uncontrolled flows of pollutants that could cause infectious diseases. Some containers contains 15 people – one per square meter. Many do not even have a mattress to sleep. "
The report continues and notes that "HRW appeals to the Greek government to improve the living conditions for asylum seekers in Lesvos and the rest of the Aegean islands in good time and to ensure people's housing, clean water and protection against attacks. HRW also raises EU responsibility: "The nature of the islands is a collective shame for Europe," said the humanitarian organization.
