<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 3rd of April 2021</b>

<i>Case name</i>: 2021_04_03-AEG780

<i>Situation</i>: 25 people were attacked by Hellenic Coastguard and later intercepted by Turkish Coastguard

<i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: concluded

<i>Place of Incident</i>: Aegean Sea

<i>Summary of the Case:</i> In the morning of 3rd April 2021 Alarm Phone got alerted about a group of about 25 travellers North of Lesvos. It was said the travellers were attacked by the Hellenic Coastguard, means their engine stolen and were drifting in Turkish waters. A telephone number was transferred to the shift team but it couldn’t reach the people in distress. At 10:56h CEST the Turkish Coastguard was called. They stated to have an ongoing rescue operation and also have rescued a group of that size already. It wasn’t possible to figure out if we are talking about the same group, we should call back. Later the day the Turkish Coastguard confirmed to have rescued exactly this group, the telephone number of the travellers were matching.
