Witnesses have accused the Greek coastguard of causing migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, with allegations of deliberate actions leading to fatalities.

The BBC’s investigation, supported by eyewitness accounts, suggests a pattern of forced returns and abandonment at sea, resulting in at least 43 deaths from May 2020 to 2023.

A Cameroonian survivor recounts being thrown overboard by Greek authorities, leading to the drowning of his companions.

The Greek coastguard denies illegal activities, but evidence presented in a new documentary raises serious concerns about their conduct.
