Greece: Refugees in Idomeni | DW Reporter
19 March 2016
Tens of thousands of refugees are stranded in the Idomeni camp on Greece’s border with the Republic of Macedonia. Most are trying to reachGermany. But now the border’s closed. They have nowhere else to go.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Dutch Socialist Party: agreement with Turkey helps mainly politicians in distress
Today, 16:57
The SP says the agreement between the EU and Turkey belongs in a trash can. “This is a solution for politicians in need and not for human beings in need,” said party leader Roemer at a party congress in Amersfoort. According to him, the UN Refugee Convention must be the basis for agreements with the Turks, “but that is now being buried by [Prime Minister] Rutte and [leader of the PvdA party, junior partner in the government] Samson.”
Negotiators in Brussels yesterday reached a deal on the return ofrefugees from Greece to Turkey. …
GroenLinks party leader Klaver believes that “rather than alleviate the plight of refugees, the European leaders have sold out the rights ofrefugees.”
D66 party MP Verhoeven recalls that parliament has demanded that there should only be a deal if Turkey would fulfill the terms of the Refugee Convention. And that is far from the case.” Also the Christian Union MP Voordewind finds that the deal is at odds with European and international law.
