Greece: immigrant dies after being neglected in concentration camp

The unbearable shame of concentration camps for immigrants in Europe has become even worse with a death caused by criminal neglect. 

Migrant from Afghanistan dies in Athens hospital after long-term neglect in the hands of the police

Mohammad Hassan, a migrant from Afghanistan, had been detained in the concentration camp of Corinth since September 2012. Despite the fact that he repeatedly complained about the pain he was suffering, his pleas were completely ignored and he received no medical help. Only on July 2, Mohammad was finally transferred to the Sismanogleio hospital in Athens. He died at the hospital on July 27. 

The doctors had diagnosed him with a respiratory infection, which would point at pneumonia or another similar infection.
