<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 22nd of December 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 2020_12_22-AEG738 <i>Situation</i>: Possible pushback by the Greek Coastguard near Samos <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Ongoing <i>Place of Incident</i>: Aegean Sea <i>Summary of the Case:</i> Just after 13:00h CET on 22 December we received information about a group of travelers from a relative of one member of the group. They told us that the group had encountered the Greek coastguards who had stolen the travelers money and beaten up the women and children near Samos. They had then been divided into two groups and been placed in the notorious orange life rafts. The group had then been picked up by the Turkish coastguard. We contacted the Turkish coastguard for information, but they told us that they had no information about a rescue in that position in the previous 24 hours. They later sent an email acknowledging the rescue of 26 people close to that position on 19 December. We were not able but our contact suggested that the people concerned were with the Turkish authorities. We have not yet been able to confirm this with the travelers themselves. If we find any updates, we will include them in this report.
