An investigation is underway to find out if and to what extent Turkish citizens asking for asylum have been sent back, Minister for Migration Policy Yiannis Mouzalas said on Tuesday in an interview with radio station 24/7.

Mouzalas expressed his opposition to the re-admissions and stressed that this is an illegal act that violates human rights.He explained that the refugee crisis found us unprepared, in both Greece and Europe.

In conclusion, he said that Europe must ensure safe corridors and have a European mechanism in the first country that will examine the applications for asylum.
