It left hundreds of migrants dead

10 November, 12:03

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, NOV 10 - The Greek state ombudsman announced Thursday that an independent investigation will be launched into the coast guard's handling of a June maritime tragedy in which hundreds of migrants attempting to reach Europe in an overcrowded boat are believed to have drowned, according to the daily Kathimerini. The independent authority stated that it made the decision after the Greek coast guard "expressedly denied" initiating a disciplinary investigation in response to the ombudsman's written requests.
