Diplomats accused of crimes against children

 

December

Former Foreign Minister of Greece Nikos Kotzias revealed on Tuesday that he has referred to the prosecutor charges that Greek diplomats were allegedly involved in issuing illegal visas to unaccompanied children.

During an interview, Kotzias revealed there are 93 cases involving diplomats illegally issuing visas to unaccompanied migrant minors. The former minister said that some of the diplomats are already in jail because of his initiative, and he alleged that issuing visas to unaccompanied children is tantamount to organ trafficking.

"The ninety-three cases I sent to the prosecutor for violation of the criminal code, and and the fact that some diplomats went to prison because they were giving visas to unaccompanied children is nothing? Do you know what visas to unaccompanied children means? It means organ trafficking. Only the fact that I saved some lives will (allow me to) sleep in peace," the former foreign minister stated.
