Asylum seekers, who were staying at a hotel in Sparti, Greece, were evacuated by police after the Ministry of Immigration and Asylum did not pay the hotel. The incident occurred in the Greek town of Sparti on the Peloponnese.
The contract with the Greek Ministry of Immigration and Asylum for the accommodation of asylum seekers has not been extended. The hotel management then asked the asylum seekers to leave the hotel after the expiry of the payment period.
Asylum-seekers did not agree to leave the hotel. The water and electricity of the rooms were cut off before the hotel management took over. Then, a criminal complaint was filed with the prosecutor’s office about the asylum seekers.
When the police, who were sent to the scene with the order of the prosecutor, tried to expel the asylum seekers from the hotel where they were staying, a clash broke out. Asylum seekers resisted not leaving the hotel. Some refugees, on the other hand, had a nervous breakdown.
A municipal councilor who went to the scene reacted to the government’s insensitivity to the issue of asylum seekers.
After the conflict that continued for a while, the asylum seekers were evacuated from the hotel and placed in a gym.
