In a recent statement, local Member of Parliament, Mr Dionysios Aktypis wanted to inform residents of Zakynthos that they have been misinformed. In regards to the arrival of possible refugees or immigrants to Zakynthos has been reported in local newspapers. Reports stating that about 390 refugees or immigrants were to arrive in Zakynthos caused alarm.
Even more, talks of these people being held at a hotel in an area not far from town sparked concern among residents.
The news had also spread to foreigners who often travel to Zakynthos and naturally many were alarmed at the possible fact.
Mr Dionysios Aktypis has called for people to stop spreading misinformation. His statement is as follows.
“Given the misinformation about the arrival of refugee-migrants in Zakynthos, I want to inform the residents that none of this is true. There is no such movement. So, let some people stop spreading fake news. It only induces harm towards our Island.”
