Greece Takes Over Management of Asylum Facilities from NGOs


The Greek government announced on Wednesday it is taking over from non-governmental organizations twenty-eight facilities hosting asylum applicants on the Greek mainland.

Minister of Migration Notis Mitarakis said that the facilities will become legal entities and come under the jurisdiction of his ministry.

A joint ministerial decision is being signed to this effect, while the government will open applications for managers of these facilities and for staff, he noted.

The ministry’s aim “is to improve the operation of all facilities, many of which operate at present under the management of international organizations or NGOs,” Mitarakis said in his statement.

The ministry, he added, “seeks the smooth operation of facilities to the benefit of residents and local communities.”
