The migrant detention centers that have been set up across Greece are facing serious problems, with the Ethnos newspaper reporting that there is no more funding for catering at the detention center in Samos.

According to the newspaper report, the firm that has undertaken the catering for the detention center on Samos did not deliver any food on Tuesday, for the first time, as it has not been paid since September 2014.

The detention center on Samos houses about 1,250 migrants, who were eventually provided with food after the intervention of the Ministries of Public Order and National Defense.

Ultimately the deputy general secretary Tzanetos Philippakos from the Ministry of Public managed to secure 40,000 euros for catering, following talks with the head of the Greek bank union Louka Katseli.
