<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – November 12th 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 20201112-AEG722 <i>Situation</i>: 50 people near Tychero in Greece, pushed back to Turkey <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Aegean Sea Position : 41.03586959838867, 26.291399002075195 <i>Summary of Case </i> In the morning of November 12th we were informed about 50 people in Greece near the village of Tychero. According to the relative who informed us of the case, they had had contact with police officers who took all but one of their phones and threatened the people in need of international protection with an illegal pushback. We could not establish contact with the people. At 10.30h CET we contacted UNHCR Greece to pass on the information on a potential push back, which was followed up by an e-mail to a number of NGOs working for the protection of human rights. The last location we had received via the relatives was inside the Tychero Border Guard Station. At 11.20h CET we reached an operator at the Tychero police stations, who nevertheless denied any knowledge of the group of people but copied the information we provided to forward it to patrols. In the evening we received a call of the relative who informed us of this case. They stated that the group of 50 people had been pushed back to Turkey and were now in Edirne. We are still investigating the detailed developments and will include potential updates into this report.
