Greece: Police violence in Greece: Not just ‘isolated incidents’
Human rights violations by Greek law enforcement officials include the use of excessive force against largely peaceful protesters and the ill-treatment of individuals during detention. The authorities consider such violence to be “isolated incidents”. However, the Greek authorities must acknowledge the extent of these violations and take measures to address the systemic problems which contribute to such abuses. Until these problems are tackled impunity will continue to prevail and the vicious circle of such abuses will not be broken.
