UNHCR Serbia Update, 10 - 16 July 2017
HIGHLIGHTS AND STATISTICS
On 16 July, 5,417 new refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants were counted in Serbia.
5,054, i.e. 93%, were accommodated in 18 governmental centres, which provide over 5,900 hard-shelter places (below chart refers). As Reception Centres (RC) in the South and East remain under-occupied, some 200 refugees and migrants - including families and unaccompanied and separated children (UASC) - complained about hot and unhygienic temporary emergency shelter in rub halls or tents in the Transit Centres (TC) in Adasevci, Principovac or Sombor.
UNHCR and partners received testimonies of 146 collective expulsions from Croatia, with many alleging to have been denied access to asylum procedures there, while 44 were recorded regarding Hungary.
UNHCR, UNICEF and the IRC issued a Roadmap for action to improve the situation of refugee and migrant children arriving and staying in Europe without their parents or care givers.
01-16 July, 146 refugees/migrants registered intention to seek asylum in Serbia.
