Syrians returned to Turkey under EU deal 'have had no access to lawyers'

11:37 May 16 2016 Düziçi, Osmaniye, Mediterranean Region, Turkey

Description
A group of 12 Syrians have been detained in a remote camp in southern Turkey called Düziçi for the past three weeks, with hundreds of other Syrians detained as well. These Syrians have no access to lawyers or specialized medical care and complain about inedible food, casting further doubts over the EU claims that they are being sent back to a safe third country. Their claims undermine the legitimacy of the EU-Turkey migration deal, under which it is likely most Syrians landing on Greek islands will be returned to Turkey, on the assumption that they can live without restrictions once there.
