Minister: Turkey and NGOs behind spike of Somalis seeking asylum in Greece.

It’s not the first time NGOs have been accused of facilitating illegal migration. No doubt, the NGOs are the unofficial partners and useful stooges of the smugglers and pariahs like Erdogan. But the EU also serves this purpose by funding more migrant camps in Greece and creating relocation schemes that simply turn illegal migration into legal migration.

The NGOs cannot hide from these allegations, nor can the EU continue to view them as “partners”. Migration and Asylum Minister Notis Mitarachi, on Tuesday, accused Turkey and certain non-governmental groups of facilitating their movements.

Somalis also testified that an NGO helped them to fly to Turkey at a cost of just 100 euros, when the real cost of the ticket is approximately 1,000 euros. Of a total 214 illegals arriving on the island of Lesvos since November 1, Mitarachi said, 142 were from Somalia, a country nowhere near Greece. He cited witness accounts and verified information that “NGOs are paying the transport and visa issue costs to get people from Somalia’s capital Mogadishu to Turkey, putting them on flights to Istanbul. From there, they are taken to the Turkish coast where migrant traffickers, again with the support of NGOs, help them to illegally enter the EU.”

Mitarachi claimed that between 2,000-2,500 migrants from Africa were currently gathered on Turkey’s western shores. Many were quick to slander Viktor Orban when he cleared the foreign NGOs promoting mass migration from his country.
However, based on his election success, Hungarians were grateful. One can easily surmise that Greeks expect the same from their government.

We will see if they take action to defy the EU, or if they continue to sign counterproductive agreements with Ylva from Sweden and the powers of Germany.

At this point, certain NGOs must be considered as the enemy within and nothing more than human traffickers masquerading as charities.
