Reacting to international criticism from human rights groups and the European Union that detention camps for illegal immigrants are a “disgrace,” Public Order Minister Vassilis Kikilias said they aren’t.

Kikilias made his comments while visiting a former army camp in Corinth, west of Athens, that has been turned into a center for holding the migrants who are continuing to pore into Greece while the EU has cut back its help on border patrols.

He said that so far some 450 migrants who had been held at the center have been repatriated.

Kikilias also suggested that authorities would relocate the unit “whenever we can,” but gave no timetable. Greece has been repeatedly condemned by the European Commission for conditions at its reception centers.
