Mouzalas announces transfer of refugees to mainland to relieve islands' congestion

Alternate Migration Minister Yiannis Mouzalas in an interview with Realnews on Sunday announced the transfer of refugees to the mainland to relieve congestion on the islands.

He admitted that there are some NGOs that exploit the situation and pointed out that it would be more efficient to have paid that money to the Greek State.

Mouzalas also expressed concern over the potential jihadist action and added that there is collaboration with the secret services of European and other countries to tackle the phenomenon before it starts to expand.
