Open letter on Syrian Refugees to Mr. Tsipras

Dear Mr. Tsipras,

With fast internet and global coverage of every thinkable event, we become overwhelmed with instant information from various sources about anything and everything as it happens. Opinions and facts are mixed so fast that we have no opportunity to understand what is true and what isn’t.

It is therefor that I respectfully request you to answer the following questions related to the refugee crisis Greece is dealing with daily:

  1. How many refugees have arrived in Greece during 2015?
  2. How many of those refugees are Syrian citizens?
  3. Are you able to establish how many Syrian refugees have arrived in Greece through Turkey directly?
  4. Are you able to establish how many Syrian refugees have arrived in Greece through other countries but have passed through Turkey during their journey?
  5. How many of the refugees who arrived in Greece have been transferred to other EU members?
  6. Which financial aid has Greece received from other EU members?
  7. Which material aid has Greece received from other EU members?
  8. Which organizational support has Greece received from other EU members?
  9. Which recommendations do you have for the other EU members in dealing with the refugee crisis?

With kind regards,

JD
