Persisting systematic detention of asylum seekers in Greece

Persisting systematic detention of asylum seekers in Greece

Greece continues to systematically impose deprivation of liberty against asylum seekers and to expose people seeking protection to serious violations of fundamental rights and to unsuitable conditions in pre-removal centres and police stations. The practice persists despite sharp criticism and mounting condemnations of the country by international bodies.

This note analyses current detention practice based on the latest available statistics on immigration detention and judicial review thereof, as well as on testimonies from refugees detained in Greece.
