Eine neue Verordnung der griechischen Regierung zielt darauf ab, NGOs und Freiwillige zu kriminalisieren, wenn sie Informationen aus Flüchtlingscamps weitergeben. Dies ist ein weiterer Versuch, die unmenschlichen Behandlung von Lebensbedingungen zu vertuschen. Vertiefte Infos bei reliefweb des United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs:
Geneva – We strongly condemn Greece’s new law prohibiting NGOs’ first-hand account of abuses inside refugee camps, said the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor in a statement today. The new confidentiality law is in essence an alarming measure to muzzle NGO workers and undermine their crucial role in highlighting the unbearable suffering asylum seekers are subjected to in infamous migrant camps.
Earlier this week, the Greek government has enacted a law that prevents all workers, including volunteers and government civil servants, from publicly sharing any information related to the operations or residents of refugee camps in the country, also after they have stopped working there. This means that NGO workers won’t be allowed to publicly raise any concerns about potential violations against asylum seekers in those camps or the inhumane conditions they are forced to live through, such as overcrowding, inadequate infrastructure, scarce food and water supply, and appalling sanitary conditions.
