British Forces in Cyprus issue statement on migrants

The British Forces in Cyprus have issued a statement regarding the migrant situation in Akrotiri as follows:

“We have been clear that RAF Akrotiri is not a route through which people will be able to get to the UK.

In accordance with existing agreements, officials from the Republic of Cyprus (RoC) in collaboration with the SBAA continue to process the migrants and deal with all asylum claims through their system.

We will not be providing a running commentary but can confirm that a small number of the migrants have already claimed asylum.

As a precautionary measure, a temporary transit facility is being provided at an appropriate location on the Sovereign Base Area should it become necessary to move the migrants.”
