The transport of refugees from Idomeni to the new accommodation centres starts today

The transport of refugees from Idomeni to the new accommodation centres will start on Tuesday, the refugee coordinating committee spokesman Giorgos Kyritsis said in statements to ANA-MPA.

He estimated that all the refugees will have been transferred in the next ten days adding that it will be a smooth relocation procedure and not a police sweeping operation.

As he said, six former industrial premises with accommodation capacity 6,500-7,000 refugees are now available. “We believe that it will take up to ten days to transfer the refugees from Idomeni and in the meantime more places will have been found,” he stated.

Meanwhile, 54,185 identified refugees and migrants were on the Greek territory on Friday including 50 persons that arrived on the Greek islands in the last 24 hours.
