Joint open letter on detention facilities

Updated: Aug 12, 2019

Together with 15 other NGOs we sent an open letter to the Greek Minister for Citizen Protection and the Chief of the Greek Police asking them to stop holding irregular migrants and asylum seekers in inappropriate facilities.

The use of inappropriate detention facilities has been a long-standing problem in Greece and has been the reason for successive decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, which has ruled that Greece has violated article 3 of the European Convention of Human Rights, as well as for many critical reports by the Council of Europe Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment.

You can find the Eglish version of the letter here.
