In a new report published on April 28, Amnesty International looks at the push-back operations of exiles at the Greek-Turkish border, based on two years of collecting evidence. It also questioned the role of the European Agency for surveillance of external borders, Frontex, in this situation of violation of human rights.

Noting the routine nature of these violations and the lack of response of the Greek authorities to stop them, the association asks the European Union to take sanctions against Greece and Frontex to stop its land and sea operations at the Greek-Turkish border.
