  • [01] Municipality files injunction objecting to illegal migrant detention centre

    AMNA--The municipality of Acharnes, north of greater Athens, filed a petition for an injunction on Monday against Citizen Protection Minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis, charging "that the Amygdalesa detention centre for illegal migrants was illegally set up".

    The municipal authorities are also considering "evicting" the police academy from the Amygdalesa facilities, which host the centre.

    A formal notification dated April 12, signed by Acharnes Mayor Sotiris Douros and addressed to the prime minister's office, the ministry of finance and the ministry of the environment, stressed that the Amygdalesa site is the property of the municipality and therefore, a prior approval by the Acharnes city council is necessary ahead of any action.

    On April 12, the municipality called on the citizen protection ministry to comply within five days and refrain from any action that would affect the Acharnes municipality property rights. amna

    For the record, the first 56 illegal migrants were transferred to the facility on Sunday. The ministry announced that a total of 220 illegal migrants will be led to the centre by May 15. The centre's capacity is 1,000-1,200 people.
