Ministry of Interior in Skopje declared that NGOs are encouraging illegal crossing of refugees on the border.

“Different reports show that NGO activists have encouraged refugees to cross the border illegally. They have spread leaflets with false information, stressing that once they cross the Greek-Macedonian border, they will be able to continue their journey to EU member countries without any stops”, the Ministry of Interior said.

According to this ministry, such attempt also happened on 14 March, when hundreds of refugees attempted to cross the border illegally.

Meanwhile, Ministry of Interior declared that Greece should establish law and order in the border area, but also in the refugees’ centers. /balkaneu.com/
