Approximately 130 Refugees to Be Relocated from Greece to Germany

February 15, 2021

ATHENS — Roughly 130 recognised refugees on the island of Lesvos will be relocated directly to Germany on Wednesday. Their transfer will be carried out on a charter flight that will land in Hannover. Among the refugees will be over 30 families.

According to Athens-Macedonian News Agency sources, the refugees are mostly from Afghanistan, while some are from Iran and Iraq.

The relocation of the refugees is taking place in the context of an agreement between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for the relocation of a total of 1,553 refugees from Greece to Germany after the destruction of the migrant camp in Moria. A total of 333 refugees have already been relocated to Germany.
