Greece: Anti-racism commission praises Greece’s national action plans, but concerns remain

The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) has welcomed Greece’s anti-racism action plan, developments in LGBTI equality, changes to the migration code to help third party nationals and moves by national broadcasters to stop hate speech.

But concerns remain, say ECRI in their latest country report. These include limits to the Greek ombudsmen’s ability to represent victims in court, continued discrimination to LGBTI pupils in schools, the frequent use of hate speech in public life and restrictions to how NGOs can assist migrants. It also points to serious misgivings about low housing standards and forced evictions of Roma and allegations of racist and LGBTI-phobic police abuse
