Interior min expresses 'anger' at EU monitoring on migrants

Rome, October 19 - Prefect Mario Morcone, head of the interior ministry's civil liberties and immigration department, on Wednesday expressed Italy's "anger" at the constant monitoring by Europe on migration while other member states are "not doing their bit". "We are angry because were are subject to constant and obsessive monitoring … we are under the magnifying glass … but we are doing our bit, the other countries are not doing theirs," Morcone told the Italian parliament's Schengen Committee. The prefect denounced a "persistent prejudice" by northern and central European countries towards Italy. "They are prepared to provide resources in exchange for closed (migrant reception) centres. But I want to be clear: we will not create closed centres, we will not create concentration camps in our country," Morcone said.
