Migration and Struggle in Greece

Evros: 6 dead and 8 missing immigrants since the beginning of the year

Posted by clandestina on 25 February 2012

On the morning of February 21, 2012, in the rural area near the village Amorion (Orestiada) another corpse was discovered. The dead immigrant was a woman of African origin, aged 18-25 years. The immigrant died because of bad weather, while trying to enter the “European dream” from Turkey, via the river Evros. On February 1, 2012 another African woman was found dead near river Evros, in the area of Tychero village this time. She was about 25 years old, and died either from drowning or hypothermia, as in those days, temperatures in the border areas could fall as low as 15 degrees below zero.

The confirmed number of dead immigrants in Evros river from the beginning of the year is six, while eight more are still missing, including a 9-years-old little girl. She and her grandfather were lost in the cold waters of the river.

    My husband also went greece looking for our nephew who also fell in the river evros on the 20th of oct 2011. He checked boarder camps and alexandrea hospital but was not able to find him. My nephew is pakistani, 22yrs of age, 5/5 with brown hair. He has a tattoo in arabic or urdu writing which spells his name Imran Ali, he was wearing 2 neclesses with green lace, one some sort of skin the other a metal object. I pray that someone could help me with either the police border email address or some organization that could help me in my search
