Save the Children Suspends Support Services on Greek Island Detention Centres Following EU-Turkey Deal

Save the Children

WASHINGTON - Following initial implementation of the EU-Turkey deal that came into effect on 20 March 2016, Save the Children has suspended all activities related to supporting basic services at all detention centres on the Greek islands due to extreme concerns that newly-arrived vulnerable children and their families are in danger of unlawful and unjustified custody for sustained periods of time.
