Greece: Amnesty International submission on the proposed changes to the Greek Law on International Protection
On 16 October 2019, the Ministry of Citizen Protection submitted for public consultation the draft legislative proposal on International Protection. A slightly amended version of the proposal with the title ‘On International Protection and other provisions’ was submitted for discussion at the Greek Parliament on 21 October and it is currently being debated by the competent Parliamentary Committee. The proposal has a wide-ranging scope and seeks to achieve a unified regulation and reform of different aspects of the Greek asylum system. This submission provides Amnesty International’s initial analysis of some of the proposed articles.
