The refugee camps in Sindos and Schisto that the army will provide for the creation of relocation centres will be open but guarded, Alternate Minister for Migration Policy Yiannis Mouzalas on Monday said in statements to SKAI TV.

The two refugee camps will have a total capacity of 8,000 persons.

Mouzalas added that the works for the construction of hotspots on the islands of Samos, Lesvos, Chios, Kos and Leros are being accelerated with the assistance of the army.

Refugees and migrants will be separated at these hotspots, he noted adding that they will stay there for 48 hours and then they will be transferred to the mainland.

According to Mouzalas, refugees constituted a 75-80 percent of the incomers, but as of December they have been reduced to 45-55 percent.
