    - Special Report: Protection of Vulnerable Children
    The Ombudsman reiterates the issue of protecting the rights of children who are temporarily or permanently deprived of their family environment, by publishing up-to-date information, findings and data. It highlights problems related to the operating model followed, distortions in the institutional framework, heterogeneity of practices, deficits in the envisaged structures, public authorities and services, which lead to unacceptable shrinkage in the safeguarding of the rights of children placed in institutional care structures. It lists the necessary interventions, reforms and policies that will allow for the abandonment of the institutional care model and the transition to the model of family support and alternative care in the community.

    - Citizenship determination for a child born out of wedlock by a Greek father and an alien mother without legal residence
    The Greek Ombudsman received a complaint regarding problems in the process of Greek citizenship acquisition by a child born out of wedlock to a Greek father and an alien mother without legal residence, within 300 days following her divorce from her ex-spouse, also an alien. Due to the ex-spouse’s presumption of paternity, a trial was required to establish paternity. Subsequently a notarial deed of child recognition was drafted, which, however, was not accepted by the 1st Directorate of Civil Status and Social Affairs of Athens, part of the Decentralised Administration of Attica, because by that time, the child had reached the age of three, and the deadline allowed for notaries dealing with third country nationals without legal residence, had expired. The Ombudsman argued that the three-year deadline of the Immigration Code had been suspended on the grounds of force majeure (completion of the paternity trial) and the Directorate of the Decentralised Administration finally decided on the child’s acquisition of the Greek nationality.
  • 24/09/2018 - Summary
    - Recording of civil status data for children with a single parent
    The Greek Ombudsman proposed that only one parent should be registered in the case of children adopted by a single parent or children born to a single father through the surrogacy procedure, without the data of a second parent (biological parent or surrogate mother). The Ministry of the Interior accepted the Ombudsman’s proposal in relation to children adopted by a single parent.
