"What Merkel, Tusk and Timmermans should have seen during their visit to Turkey" [Report from GUE/NGL Delegation to Turkey, May 2-4, 2016]

09:03 May 20 2016 Kilis, Kilis (merkez), Kilis, Southeastern Anatolia Region, Turkey

Description
A recent report published by GUE/NGL, following a field mission in Turkey, has shed some light on the consequences for migrants being returned to Turkey from the EU. The key findings of the delegation were:
1. People deported from Greece have, until now, had no opportunity to ask
for asylum, neither in Greece nor in Turkey;
2. Detention under a prison-style regime including for children;
3. Documented push-backs to Turkey by Bulgarian and Greek police forces;
4. Horrifying testimonials from refugees as a result of the closure of the
Turkish-Syrian border.
