  • First group of  asylum seekers presently located in Greece and Italy might arrive to Latvia in January 2016

The State Secretary of The Ministry of Interior Ilze Petersone-Godmane in an interview with Neatkariga says that the first part of asylum seekers who presently are located in Italy and Greece might arrive to Latvia in January 2016.  531 asylum seekers that Latvia agreed to accommodate will arrive gradually during next two years.  Mrs Petersone-Godmane believes that the majority of these asylum seekers will be granted asylum in Latvia, but most likely some of them will leave the country and travel to the others EU countries.
