Citizen's Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis announced on Sunday that the construction of the fence at Evros, for the handling of the illegal immigrants phenomenon, will begin shortly, given that the time limit for the submission of bids by companies desiring to undertake the project ends on October 4.
The minister made the announcement during the swearing in ceremony for 608 graduates of the Komotini Police Academy.

Papoutsis congratulated the graduates and their families and praised the level of training and their trainers, while stressing that one of the cornerstones of the functioning of the Greek Police is the defending of human rights, the security of citizens and social cohesion.
