EU-Turkey Refugee Deal a Historic Blow to Rights

BRUSSELS -

European leaders’ collective ‘double-speak’ fails to hide the myriad of contradictions of the deal sealed between the EU and Turkey on how to handle the refugee crisis, said Amnesty International today.

“The ‘double-speak’ this deal is cloaked in fails to hide the European Union’s dogged determination turn its back on a global refugee crisis, and wilfully ignore its international obligations,” said John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s Director for Europe and Central Asia.
