Greece: 'Direct attack' on asylum seekers - Lawyer of Afghan father facing charges over son's death

Греция, Samos

The lawyer of the 25-year-old Afghan father, who is being charged over his six-year-old son's tragic death while attempting to reach the Greek island of Samos, said the charges are a 'direct attack' against asylum seekers, on Monday.

"[It] shows a tendency from the Greek authorities not to search and rescue the way they used to, not to involve other organisations like a front desk to this search and rescue. There was a big delay for them to get some help and when finally found them instead of taking care of them, all of them, they decided to press charges against them," said lawyer Dimitris Choulis, in Samos.

"This case for us, it's a direct attack against the right to seek asylum for a family, and shows the hostility that the Greek authorities have against asylum seekers," he added.

Choulis explains that his client tried to call for help after the boat that was trying to reach the island of Samos from the Turkish coast capsized on the 8th of November, but the rescue operation was 'late.'

"After nine hours the body of his son was found and he was accused of the death of his son. In our opinion, this charges that are against him are one more obstacle for the asylum seekers," said Choulis.

If found guilty the Afghan father will face up to 10 years in prison for endangering the life of his six-year-old boy. An investigation is still underway to shed light on the events of the night.
