Turkey to install cameras on Greek border to monitor migrants

22 Turkish villages in the Ipsala town of north-western province of Edirne on Greece's border will be watched by "MOBESE" security cameras in order to prevent "illegal" migration and to lower incidents of crime.

Speaking to the AA, Ipsala sub-governor Mehmet Ali Gurbuz said that they wanted to place security cameras in 22 villages of Ipsala and that priority would be given to Saricaali, Ahirkoy and Turpcular villages.

The cost of the "MOBESE" security cameras would be met by the sub-governorship of Ipsala and the villages themselves, Gurbuz said.

The security camera system for the villages will cost around 50,000 Turkish Liras (TL). We expect the camera system to facilitate a drop in criminal acts, Gurbuz said.

The number of security cameras would be determined according to the size of the villages. We will erect at least two and at most four security cameras in a village, Gurbuz also said.
