When Volunteers & Government Collide

#Lesvos: Frontex, Turkish and Geek Police, is this the New Day?

The increased presence of the police and Frontex over the past week comes following a tip off that large numbers of armed Turkish police were to be deployed to Camp Moria, Lesvos last Friday in a coordinated Greek / Turkish response to the refugee crisis, coordinated at an EU level.  Reports of aggressive and violent police behaviour have been reported by volunteers.

Over the past week there have been reports of volunteers being arrested on Lesvos. YesterdayEkathimerini.com rather dramatically reported that seven foreign nationals working for NGOs were arrested on Monday for “stealing” life jackets from the local dump. The report went on to suggest that local authorities didn’t believe the volunteers requirements for the life jackets – which was to use them as ground insulation in tents – was the actual intended use. The entire incident is a bit bizarre and smacks of a slow news day.

However volunteers caught up in the incident, all of whom were released without charge were most frustrated by the fact that an entire day was wasted as they were subjected to 11 hours of form filling in the local police station. The volunteers involved have been quick to point out that they were unaware of the fact that the dump was in fact government property and there was no signage to alert them of the fact.

These incidents open up the debate about the rights of volunteers, particularly when acting in an emergency response situation , Independent Witness wrote

How the migrants’ trafficking bomb in Greece was covered and fed for a decade by previous governements. Frontex Analysis pointing now to ISIS entrance threat

1021-744x418Special trainned crews of the Greek Police Counter-Terrorism and the Greek National Intelligence Service, specialized on international-Islamist terrorism, are sent to the illegal immigrants’ entry points of Greece, the Aegean islands of Mytilini, Chios,and others, and to the Northern border station of Evros

National Intelligence Service and the Greek Police have been set on the Alert on the country’s Entry Points for the possibility fighters of the Islamic State (ISIS) to entry Europe through Greece among the hundreds and thousands immigrants that arrive daily on the islands of Eastern Aegean.

A Syrian national, arrested among migrants rescued on the island of Chios by the Coast guard, had saved on his mobile phone photos with arms and ammunition from battlefields in Syria. When interrogated he declared himself as “dissident” who fights against the Assad government.There have not been found any signs of interconnection with Islamist terrorist networks, while his identity is not found  in the ‘list of suspects “of Schengen list (Schengen Information System).

Also, the arrest of a 18 year old Albanian  is reported on the Greek-Albanian border for illegal entry  The Albanian, who allegedly confessed that his intention was to travel to Syria, and was deported.

Officers of the Police and Greek National intelligence predict that the phenomenon will intensify during the summer months and point out that police staff has already reinforced the border posts of the country.

“Bio-Check Borders control”: Syrian refugees need Polio screening and vaccine to enter Northern European Countries

The Greek Center of Disease Control(HCDCP) special trained teams, –the most expertise -trainned on ‘Human trafficking masses’ Health safety crews throughout Europe since the start of the phenomenon on 2005-,  are standing on the Aegean islands and the borders’ frontline, supporting the First line screening proceedures and taking precautionary measures for the Global Village safety, including if needed blood samples control.

While the islands reporting the largest number of arrivals remained Lesbos, Chios and Samos, detections were also reported from small islands from North to South, stretching capacity of surveillance.

Many migrants claimed to be Syrian, and were thus handed an administrative notice allowing them to stay in Greece for up to six months, even without applying for asylum.

Screening processes of some migrants revealed a high degree of falsely claimed nationalities to avoid return. Not knowing the nationality of migrants who are illegally crossing the border and travelling within the EU is evidently a vulnerability for EU internal security. [***] ”

Isis plans to use immigrant boats from Libya to cause terror in Europe and close shipping routes…

…wrote in mid April 2015 the Independent, based on an online essay written by a prominent Isis supporter who, claiming to be in Libya, called the country the “strategic gateway for the Islamic State” and announced the “blessed expansion” of its so-called caliphate into North Africa.  The essay, translated by counter-extremism think-tank the Quilliam Foundation, said: “(Libya) has a long coastline and looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat and note that the number of ‘illegal immigration’ trips from this coast is massive, estimated to be as high as 500 people a day, as a low estimate.

“According to many [of these immigrants], it is easily possible to pass through Maritime Security Checkpoints and arrive in cities.

[Proximity to Europe]

Add to that the fact that it has a long coast line and looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat and note that the number of ‘illegal immigration” trips from this coast is massive, estimated to be as high as 500 people a day, as a low estimate. According to many [of these immigrants],it is easily possible to pass through Maritime Security Checkpoints and arrive in cities. If this was even partially exploited and developed strategically, pandemonium could be wrought in the Southern Europe. It is even possible that there could be a closure of shipping lines because of the targeting of Crusader ships and tankers.

35bb729f5855877b840b4f6bb3dc2422“Migration is not an issue for inexpensive populism,” Alexis Tsipras recently said,  emphasizing on the recent summit talks in Europe, and slammed the former New Democracy-led coalition government for not using  a single euro of the EU funds that had been available for the reception and migrant hosting centers needed.

“We are looking for a way to decongest our islands ahead of the tourist season ” Prime Minister  said. Alexis Tsipras also, -avoiding, though, to cause further panic on the chaotic Greek society has openly said “Our bigggest threat is Jihad “(not the Greek prisoners terrorists, he meant, when asked on Greece’s terrorism threat)

ISIS-MAINIn the meanwhile supporters of Islamic State (ISIS) are allegedly in Rome, according to a series of threatening tweets and photos collected by the intelligence monitoring organisation, SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist networks.

The tweets show several photos of iconic monuments in Rome, such as the Colosseum, with threatening signs held up in front of the camera, the Italian website The Local reported.

  • Shame on the governments who covered it

 Greek and Turkish networks’ interaction since long, reports now National Intelligence

The trafficking routes to the islands of Aegean and the smugglers’ methods, contacts and interfaces revealed a recent official Report of the Greek Police that is conducted by the cooperation of the Greek National Intelligence Service. According to the report, persons and contacts from Greece provide assistance to the Turkish smugglers and on time information as to successfully “synchronize” their movements to avoiding or verde(the Greek Police and National Intelligence Trafficking Report, April 28,2015)

the Coast Guard patrols.

  • The report notes that “networks operating in Turkey have persons in Greece who provide them information on the time schedule and the movements of the patrol vessels of the Coast Guard. These persons either observe the hours and the routes of the patrols from high points on the Greek islands, or pretending they are fishing, follow the patrols in the sea , from a safe distance but potent to inform the smugglers network while sailing in their fishing boats.

The Turkish immigrant trafficking networks use a wide variety of boats, but most often high-speed inflatable boats with powerful engines that ususally carry 30-40 illegal migrants, adds the document.

  • There has been found established cooperation of the Turkish trafficking network with Greek corresponding network that disposes high speed boats with outstanding features (vacuum ship speed 70 km/hr), the report undelines.
  • A number of police officers serving in the migration services have been transferred to other departments, in response to an internal Police investigation according to which Greek Police officers are involved in human trafficking rings.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Public Order and police command are awaiting the findings of the internal affairs investigation into allegations of bribery amongst high-ranking police officers in relation to assisting human trafficking rings. It appears that the investigation, which began in early 2014, was expedited after the publication of To Vima’s report.By the investigation, it comes off that two to three Turkish nationals who are in charge of human trafficking rings were in contact officers in the Police and National Intelligence Agency (EYP). EYP had ordered an investigation into the matter in 2013, which revealed that the traffickers were being supplied with forged travel documents and certificates. Some police officers have claimed that they have established contact with Turkish traffickers as “informants”, in order to draw information and that they were unaware of the investigation being carried out.
