Greek border guards are said to have thrown migrants into the sea

nAccording to multiple media research, Greek border guards are said to have dumped three migrants into the sea in September 2021, two of whom drowned. So the men were picked up by the coast guards on the island of Samos, driven into the Aegean Sea and forced into the waters there, as Mirror” writes. There is no definitive proof, but there is credible evidence.
The main witness is the third of the men interviewed in Turkey. According to him, the three of them secretly went to Samos in a large group from Turkey. After being caught, all three were beaten up and taken to sea in speedboats, where they were thrown overboard. So he himself was able to swim off the coast of Turkey, the other two were found dead.
From Turkey, people keep trying to get to Greece and the European Union via the Aegean Sea. Illegal pushing and abandonment of inflatable rafts by border guards is said to have happened in several cases, according to non-governmental organizations and media reports. But throwing in the water would be a new quality.
“Spiegel” collaborated with partner media “Lighthouse Reports”, “Guardian” and “MediaPart” to reconstruct the events. They are said to have been based on eyewitnesses, informers from Greek officials, medical reports, photographs, videos and satellite images. For example, the main witness identified a Coast Guard boat on photographs – and such a boat was ostensibly stationed on Samos. Reportedly, Greek police dismiss the allegations across the board.
