    - Readmission to the police of an officer dismissed due to chronic illness
    A Police Academy student, deregistered in 2006, due to the fact that he was diagnosed with hepatitis b, filed for readmission. His application was rejected by the competent Higher Health Commission. The Ombudsman has pointed out to the Police that the above decision is unlawful on the grounds that it does not contain specific reasoning as to the applicant’s unfitness to carry out office duties, and therefore, based on the mere fact that he suffers from a chronic condition, constitutes discrimination prohibited under Law 4443/16. The competent Reviewing Medical Committee re-examined the application and allowed the applicant’s readmission for office duty.

    - Abolishment of an upper age limit at a municipal legal entity
    The Ombudsman addressed the legal entity of the municipality of Oropos KEDO, highlighting that the age limit set in the notice for recruitment of music teachers with a fixed-term employment contract, did not constitute an acceptable derogation from the provisions of Law 3304/05 (already Law 4443/16) which prohibit discrimination on the grounds of age, unless justified by specific reasons and under certain strict conditions.KEDO responded immediately and proceeded to amend the notice by removing the age limit, taking into account that the maximum retirement age is 67.
  • 27/04/2017 - Summary
    - Postponement of demolition of Roma settlement
    Roma citizens filed a complaint with the Ombudsman stating that they had received notification from the authorities that their settlement in Haravgi, Halkida (shed, motor home) would be demolished. The Ombudsman intervened, requesting the authorities to avoid any measure leading to the violent expulsion or compulsory evacuation of the Roma families from their place of residence; it also highlighted that departure from their dwellings requires prior actions by the authorities, such as securing their legal stay to a specific location, which meets at least the basic conditions of dignity, as well as taking care of the practical aspects of such relocation. The Decentralised Administration of Thessaly — Sterea Ellada responded that it would postpone demolition until a proper site for relocation of the Roma has been found, in accordance with the legislation in force. Also, upon an objection filed by the Roma, the fines imposed were reduced because such housing constructions were estimated as temporary.
