In Igoumenitsa, the raids in spring have borne fruit. Of course, the exiles are still there, but less numerous, less visible, more isolated, more dependent on smugglers. While in February the smugglers could no longer control the comings and goings and to pay for their stay exiles and their passage, the small group hiding in the mountains it is under control, and the contact became difficult for volunteers. The exiles were also scattered throughout the hinterland.

At the other end of the country near the Turkish border, a revolt took place in the detention center Fylakio where detainees set fire to mattresses. The revolt was quelled by riot police.

Also in September, the international NGO Human Rights Wach published a report on the responsibility of Frontex in the human rights violations of the exiles in Greece. Indeed exiles arrested by the European Agency are given to the Greek police and placed in detention centers under conditions considered inhuman and degrading. Frontex replied that the question of how exiles are treated and delivering it to the Greek authorities is beyond the scope of its mandate.
