Only 12 out of 115 refugees who arrived in Akrotiri apply for asylum
Only 12 refugees out of 115 who arrived in Akrotiri last week have indicated interest to apply for asylum, according to report in GC press.

Head of the Foreign Ministry crisis management unit Mavromatis has said there isn’t an exact number but they believe it to be around that. An SBA spokesman said they could not confirm the numbers as it was an ongoing process.

 The refugees had arrived on the shore of Akrotiri on two rafts.

Mavromatis said they would know the exact number once the SBA begins processing the requests.
