National Mechanism for the Investigation of Arbitrary Incidents – Special Report for 2020

Description

According to the Greek Ombudsman, the year 2020 marks a decisive turn in the investigation of arbitrary incidents by police officers or other members of the security forces. The alleged incidents submitted to the Ombudsman as National Mechanism for the Investigation of Arbitrary Incidents increased by 75% by individual complainants and by 26% in total, indicating the recognition by the public at large of the independent authority’s contribution to securing substantial safeguards in independent and objective investigation procedures. The rising trend of complaints reflects the demand for effective investigation of alleged violations of the right to life, physical integrity and personal safety. The legislative enhancement of the independent authority with institutional means of investigation in 2020, increases its potential to fulfill its mandate as National Mechanism for the Investigation of Arbitrary Incidents which is crucial in a rule of law state.
