Twenty-seven Migrants Being Rescued off Drifting Boat, South of Gavdos

December 8, 2023

ATHENS – Greek Port Authorities are in the process of rescuing 27 migrants south of Greece’s southernmost island, Gavdos, on Thursday.

The migrants were adrift on a boat from which they sent a signal for help, and authorities are transferring them to Sfakia, on southern Crete, for registration and first aid.

According to information provided to ANA-MPA, they are all men who may be transferred to the facilities of the Kalathas summer camp in Chania, NW Crete.

Gavdos and its sea region have served as a gateway to Greece in multiple occasions recently.


ATHENS - There was keen investor interest in acquiring a 27 percent stake in Piraeus Bank from Greece’s bank bailout fund, which was oversubscribed as it will be the third of the country’s four biggest banks to be fully privatized.
