<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 19th of January 2021</b> <i>Case name</i>: 20211901-AEG742 <i>Situation</i>: 32 people pushed back by Hellenic Coast Guard, were brought to İzmir <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: 32 people pushed back by Hellenic Coast Guard, were brought to İzmir <i>Summary of the Case:</i> On 19th January 2021 the Alarm Phone was alerted by a relative in the early morning to a boat in distress east of Lesvos. We received a GPS position, the telephone number of the travellers and the information that the people should have been returned by the Hellenic Coast Guard. No contact to the travellers could be established. At 08.45h CET we called the Greek authorities. They said with this position it’s not their responsibility and also won’t confirm if there has been a case. The Alarm Phone called MRCC Ankara who confirmed the rescue of 32 people less hours ago near the given position. The Alarm Phone emailed UNHCR to report about this likely push back. At 10.33h CET we received an email from MRCC Ankara in which was specified that the Hellenic Coast Guard pushed back one group in the early morning. The 32 people were taken to İzmir.
