ATHENS, Greece (Balkan Insight) — Eight asylum seekers are taking legal action against Macedonia for expelling them back to Greece after a chaotic mass border crossing earlier this year.
The migrant advocacy group ProAsyl said it helped the group file a complaint Monday with the Council of Europe’s Court of Human Rights.
Karl Kopp of the Frankfurt, Germany-based group said Thursday that the asylum seekers were from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. He did not disclose their names. [...]
The March 14 incident occurred along a rugged stretch of the Greek-Macedonian border when hundreds of migrants and refugees who had forced their way across were detained and then expelled.
