“The Ombudsman’s oversight of the Police”

Between the 2 –3 June, an international capacity building seminar, entitled “The Ombudsman’s oversight of the Police”, was organized in the city of Hermoupolis on the island of Syros.
Approximately forty representatives from Greece, Southeastern and other European countries were invited to participate in the seminar, among whom the Ombudsman delegations of Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, the Netherlands, representatives of the European Court of Human Rights, the Office of the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe, Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and the Aristotle University of Thessalonica, the Chief of the Greek Police Headquarters with a four-member delegation of the Ministry of Public Order and other international experts.
The Greek Ombudsman attributes major importance to this seminar, as it was the first time that an open international comparative debate was organized in Greece, covering issues related to the police authority’s accountability to the Ombudsman and the internal disciplinary procedures of the Police itself.
