Well-known Istanbul Armenian linguist Sevan Nisanyan wrote on Facebook that the police stopped him at the airport on his way back to Athens after a short foreign trip, and they deported him from Greece without giving an explanation.

Nisanyan stressed that he has been married to a Greek citizen for four years and has not had any problems with Greek law enforcement agencies.

"After escaping from a Turkish prison in 2017, I was living in a small village on the Greek island of Samos. In Turkey, I was able to live on royalties coming from my books’ publications in Turkey and social media, as well as going on small trips. But now I do not know where I will go and how to start a new life in another country when I am 66 years old already," Sevan Nisanyan added.
