Fifty Refugees, Including Unaccompanied Minors, to Depart for UK on Monday

ATHENS – A group of 50 refugees – including 16 unaccompanied minors and 34 adults being reunited with their families – are to depart from Athens 'Eleftherios Venizelos' international airport on Monday morning. According to the migration and asylum ministry, 130 Greeks currently stranded in London due to the lockdown measures will be returning to Athens with the return flight.

The plane will be departing at 9:00, in the presence of Alternate Migration and Asylum Minister Giorgos Koumoutsakos and UK Ambassador in Athens Kate Smith, as well as the Special Secretary for the Protection of Unaccompanied Minors Irene Agapidaki.

The flight was arranged during talks between Koumoutsakos and UK undersecretary for immigration compliance Christ Philp that led to the signature of a Greek-UK Strategic Action Plan for cooperation on tackling migration.
