Citizen' Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis announced in Parliament on Monday that "the fence at Evros will be constructed. The process has already been completed for the tabling of bids, with 14 companies showing interest; we are waiting for the results."

Replying to a question by a deputy on the taking of measures to limit the number of illegal immigrants trying to enter the country, Papoutsis said that a thermal camera network will be ready by the end of November, stressing that all auxiliary infrastructure is also being completed.
