<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 25th of December 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 2020_12_25-AEG740 <i>Situation</i>: Three young men stranded on Lesvos <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Ongoing <i>Place of Incident</i>: Aegean Sea <i>Summary of the Case:</i> At 07:39h CET on 25 December, we were contacted by three young men from the Congo. They had become separated from a group who were being taken to the quarantine centre on Lesvos. Having been attacked and pushed back by the Greek authorities in a previous attempt to cross, they were afraid of a repeat. We emailed their location, their identities and their wish to claim asylum to the Greek authorities, copying in Frontex, NATO, the ombudsman, UNHCR and various international NGOs present on Lesvos. We had no further contact with the group after 10:42h but we are hopeful that they made it to the quarantine camp and did not experience a second pushback. If we find any updates, we will include them in this report.
