Afghan migrant Nazir Gazemi shudders at the thought of the two and a half years he spent in the so-called Greek Guantanamos, the notorious migrant detention camps the country's new government now says it will close.It was the suicide of a 28-year-old Pakistani in the camp two weeks ago – the latest of many such deaths – that was the final straw for Greece's radical new government.Human rights group fear the release of the disputed document was an attempt to undermine Syriza's vow to grant citizenship to immigrants' children born in Greece and to free the 4,500 migrants it admits are held in inhumane conditions in the camps.So heavy is the burden that EU migration rules place on cash-strapped Greece – with the Dublin 2 rule dictating that migrants' asylum claims must be dealt with in the first country they enter – that leaders have been tempted by radical measures.
