GENEVA (16 March 2016) – Europe cannot shrug off its responsibility for migrants and pass the buck to Turkey, said the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, François Crépeau.

The human rights expert was speaking on the eve of the European Union Migration Summit on 17-18 March, where leaders of the 28-nation bloc will discuss the new agreement with Turkey to take back all migrants crossing irregularly to Greece, including refugees.
