Travellers from Greece subjected to humiliating security checks at the German Airports
Greek nationals arriving at major airports around Germany in recent days are forced to go through a humiliating and strict security check process.German authorities have indicated that some 1,000 migrants and refugees have arrived in the country presenting false travel documents,
between January and October 2017, and this is the reason they imposed stringent controls on those travelling from Greece.The German government’s decision to suspend certain Schengen Area provisions for Greek travellers has caused a crisis between Athens and Berlin.
Greek travellers arriving at German airports describe how they are separated from other European Union and Schengen Zone nationals and steer to different facilities, where they are subjected to extensive interrogation and checks.
German authorities express concerns that Greek identification cards are easy to be forged by jihadist terrorists aiming to commit attacks in German soil. Similar measures have been introduced by Austria, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
