Statement about the latest developments

In the light of the latest developments in the situation of refugees and asylum seekers in Bulgaria Bordermonitoring is sad to observe its most feared concerns coming true. It became apparent that the solutions to the refugee crisis with regards to accommodation that offered prolonged stays in the centers were temporary and easy to revoke, as we have underlined in our report.
