Today, with @investigate_eu @reporters_gr and media partners @vice_de @openDemocracy @Publico we publish a first-hand document of EU's failure to protect the most vulnerable asylum seekers -unaccompanied minors.

#MoriaLogs #MoriaDiary


Written by the people who were there to protect them, but often feel incapable of doing so, the personnel logbook reveals the horrors that unaccompanied minors in the "safe zone" were left to endure.


"Safe zones" are separated areas inside refugee facilities, where minors without relatives live under supervision for their safety.

This logbook reveals an environment where the danger of electrocution is not only real, but far from the only concern.


Other dangers included infusion by dead rats found in the childrens' fruits; alcohol and drugs abuse; self-harm; and abuse from adults of the camp.


@Malichudis found the notebook while reporting in #Lesbos in September, and worked on it w/ @IPapangeli.

We teamed up with our great colleagues of @investigate_eu and @reporters_gr & went through a long verification process.


The story is published in collaboration with them.

@investigate_eu is a network of experienced journalists investigation issues of European importance.

You can read the story in their website here 👉investigate-europe.eu/en/2020/moria-…
@SindhuriN from @investigate_eu also hosts a podcast featuring @Malichudis on the story of the notebook and its findings. You can listen to it here.

German-speaking readers can read the story and many of the shocking logs of the logbook at @vice_de.
