Council of Europe anti-torture Committee publishes report on Greece

Strasbourg, 30.06.2009 – The  Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) has published today the report on its ad hoc visit to Greece in September 2008, together with the response of the Greek Government. These documents have been made public at the request of the Greek authorities.

In the course of this visit, the CPT reviewed the treatment of persons detained by law enforcement officials and examined the conditions of detention in police and border guard stations as well as in special facilities for illegal migrants, in order to evaluate progress made since the CPT’s last visit to Greece in 2007.

The CPT’s visit report and the response of the Greek Government are available in English on the CPT’s website: .
