PILC has joined 255 other organisations in signing a joint letter to the Greek government and the EU opposing the the suspension of the right to seek asylum for all people entering Greece. We are joining the call for Greece to withdraw its illegal and unconstitutional Emergency Legislative Decree and immediately stop returning people to states where their lives and freedom are at risk. As the letter states, EU member states must also re-establish mechanisms for the relocation of refugees and asylum seekers from Greece to other EU countries.

The joint letter can be read in full here.
