THESSALONIKI – An unaccompanied 10-year-old migrant housed at a police station in northern Greece for nearly a month and a half (44 days) was transferred temporarily to an NGO facility in Athens.

The child’s case was brought to public notice by NGO Arsis, which had found the Syrian child under protective custody in the detention cell at the Servia police station in the Kozani area.

METAdrasi NGO assumed all necessary procedures with the help of the police and a public prosecutor, and has brought the boy to a its facility in Athens, where another 14 children of similar ages are housed.

The NGO said “the child was obviously exhausted from its long stay in a detention center, but the METAdrasis woman who accompanied him to Athens was assisted by an interpreter over the phone who explained to him she was there to accompany him to a family environment, where he will find other children of his age.”
