2018

  • 14/06/2018 - Summary
    - Reunification of alien minors, housed in a shelter, with their mother who was released from prison
    A non-governmental organization (NGO), which deals with the support of prisoners and ex-prisoners, reported to the Authority that an alien mother was prevented from communicating and reuniting with her two minor children who, at the time of her detention, were housed in a child protection shelter, following the public prosecutor's order. The investigation of the case showed that the impediment was mainly due to errors and shortcomings in the entry in civil records of the two infants who were born in Greece. Another serious issue was that the mother’s deadline to leave the country had expired, which resulted in her illegal stay. Because of the above problems, the prosecutor rejected the reunification request, and the competent consulate did not issue travel documents for the family to return to their homeland.

  • 13/10/2017 - Summary
    - Issue of primary school qualifications for foreign minors
    The social service of a Child Protection Institute turned to the Ombudsman after finding that the local primary school, schooling a number of foreign minors hosted by the Institute, was not treating them as normally registered students. The Ombudsman noted that, on the basis of the existing legislation, children of third-country citizens residing in the country are registered in public schools even lacking supporting documents. The positive outcome of the intervention of the Ombudsman coincided with the recent adoption of an explicit provision on the matter.
  • 02/08/2017 - Summary
    - Retroactive granting of a welfare allowance to a child with severe disabilities
    Municipal social service, in agreement with the parents of a child suffering from severe disability, sought the assistance of the Ombudsman to resume the child’s disability allowance, after it had been discontinued for a long period without the beneficiary’s fault. In the course of the investigation, there was a shift in attitude on behalf of the State Agency and the child’s guardian submitted a supplementary complaint due to subsequent conflict of interest. After repeated interventions by the Ombudsman to the agencies involved, the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Social Solidarity adopted the positions of the Independent Authority and the social service was given instructions to grant the allowance retroactively, also covering the period of the child’s transfer from the centre.
