I4C Trouble with Daly and Wallace

EP 87 - Seeking asylum is not a crime

Episode Summary

This week Mick and Clare are in Lesvos, Greece for the trial of Amir Zahiri and Akif Razuli who are being prosecuted as "people smugglers" for trying to seek asylum. They face 50 years each. We discuss their case and how Fortress Europe is allowing member states to criminalise asylum seekers through anti-smuggling laws. We also discuss a recent trip to Lithuania for another trial- this time that of Algirdas Paleckis, a writer being charged with espionage. Finally, the latest on the war in Ukraine.
