The Home Secretary had raised questions about the existence of the tents before the migrants were at the site.

The United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) denies that the tents were ready and waiting for refugees and migrant asylum seekers who tried to cross from the occupied territories to the free areas. The Minister of the Interior, Konstantinos Ioannou, made relevant statements to ASTRA, and a related publication was hosted by “F” yesterday. It is noted that 33 refugees and immigrants, including children, have been staying inside the dead zone for days, because the authorities of the Republic of Cyprus do not allow them to cross into the free areas.

Specifically, in today's post by UNFICYP on the X/Twitter platform states the following: “Lies and misleading. UN peacekeepers found the asylum seekers inside the Dead Zone and provided tents and humanitarian aid only after they were denied entry and trapped.”

It is noted that, earlier, on June 14, 2024, the President of the Republic, addressing the High Commission of the UN for refugees, had stated that “we do not accept lessons in managing the issue of migrants from anyone”.
