Father and son
A father holds his son in the pouring rain after waking up on the hard-shoulder of the highway leading to Idomeni on the Greek-FYROM border. He, his wife and their two sons were one of the last families to enter into Greece before the EU-Turkey deal came into action on the 20th of March. Despite the deal thousands of refugees have still made it to the Greek Islands from Turkey in the last 2 days.
Refugee Crisis: Serbia
Young men and unaccompanied minors from Afghanistan and Pakistan wait outside in the rain. Due to police corruption inside the station refugees are being charged 5 euros per registration or 25 euros for a ‘fast-track’ service. Many refugees have been beaten and robbed in Bulgaria by the Bulgarian police and arrive in Serbia with no money – meaning that they must wait until they can borrow or be wired enough money to pay the registration. Registration should be free in all camps and registration centres across Europe but as it is a closed police station without the watchful eye of international NGOs many boys are beaten in the secrecy of the night by the Serbian Immigration Police for not paying the fee.
Refugee Crisis: Serbia
Members of the Serbian Mafia count their money in the back room of a dentist's office. Both men work for the bus service which waits outside the camp and that has monopolized the transport system for refugees going from Dimitrovgrad on the Serbian-Bulgarian border to to Belgrade - charging refugees 30 Euros per ticket and bullying anyone who tries to advise the refugees that there are trains leaving from across town for just 10 Euros.
