Migration and Struggle in Greece

Procedures for deportations being speeded up

Posted by clandestina on 13 July 2011

Expulsions of sans papiers immigrants will now be taking place with speedy procedures, since Greece’s legislation is being harmonised with EU directive 2008/115/EK, also following the validation of law 3907/2011.
According to a relevant circular by Interior Minister Haris Kastanidis, a harmonised procedure is being enacted, at the level of EU member-states, for the return of a citizen from a third country “staying illegally”, to end his “illegal stay”.
“Illegal residence” is the characterisation for the presence in Greek territory of every citizen of a third country who “does not fullfill or no longer fulfills entry preconditions, as determined in article five of the Schengen’s Border Code, or the rest of the preconditions for entry, residence or stay, of the existing legislation.” (ANA)
