 Subject:  Rapes at the refugee camp in Moria (Lesbos)
 Answer in writing 

According to the organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), every week, women and children who have been raped come to its clinic in the Moria refugee camp on Lesbos. In most cases, migrants do not complain for fear of reprisals. The camp has capacity for 3 100 people, but more than 9 000 are living there. There is 1 toilet per 80 and 1 shower per 200 people. They live in containers or tents. There is no space for children to play. Every week, teenagers attempt suicide.

MSF has revealed the state of emergency that they are surviving in and called for all vulnerable people, particularly children, to be moved out urgently. An MSF coordinator said that conditions are better in many of the refugee camps in Africa. This is happening in EU territory. We are all part of this situation. The responsibility falls to us.

1. With regard to rape cases, what measures is the Commission taking to protect those migrants, particularly the most vulnerable? 2. How can the Commission ensure that rapists are brought to justice?3. Is there any psychological support that could be given to young people who attempt suicide?
