Former army camps will be used as so-called first reception centres for third-country nationals who enter Greece illegally and are subsequently ordered to return to their home countries, according to an amendment included in a citizen protection ministry-sponsored draft law submitted in Parliament on Friday.

The amendment is included in the draft law on the establishment of an asylum service and a first reception service and harmonisation of Greek legislation to the 2008/115/EC Directive on common standards and procedures in member-states for returning illegally staying third country nationals.

The defense ministry will allow the former army campsites and their facilities to be utilised by the citizen protection ministry and as detention centres.
