Greece: A law unto themselves: A culture of abuse and impunity in the Greek police
As Greece faces its sixth year of deep economic crisis, police responses to social tensions continue to flout international human rights law. A series of police-implemented state policies and police raids at Roma settlements have led to a rise in human rights violations such as racial profiling and arbitrary detention. These abuses are taking place against a background of a steep increase of racially motivated attacks. Successive Greek governments have failed to acknowledge the scale and systematic nature of human rights violations by law enforcement officials and entrenched impunity.
