5:25 pm
which is what concerns us and cross border crime. and the, the, the crime in question is illegal entry from turkey, including crossings by refugees from the banks of the everest river, which separates the 2 countries. 15 of these cameras will monitor the entire 200 kilometer length of the greek turkish border by the end of the year. they can detect people hiding behind trees and bushes, and there, supplemented by radar, unmanned aerial vehicles and graham sensors. surveillance was stepped up after march last year when turkey reneged on an agreement to hold back refugees from the european union. instead, it encouraged them to storm the greek border. but security concerns go back much further. in 2010, 36000 people entered greece illegally across the land border with turkey 26000 of them along the 12 kilometer stretch behind me. 2 years later, the greek armed forces erected a double chain link fence, 3 meters tall along these 12 kilometers. and after last year's events,
