Fields of Intervention

2. Are there any state agencies not falling within the competence of the Greek Ombudsman?

The following do not fall within the competence of the Greek Ombudsman:
•    Ministers and Deputy Ministers with respect to implementation of policy (e.g. their legislative initiative)
•    Religious Legal Entities (unless the case regards the protection of children’s rights)
•    Judicial and Public Prosecuting Authorities and their administrative services (e.g. court secretariats etc). However, the Greek Ombudsman’s competence includes public services under the public prosecutor’s supervision, such as jails, civil registries, land registries.
•    Military Services only when it comes to national defense and security matters.  However, military units and recruiting services are monitored by the Greek Ombudsman when it comes to matters pertinent to the rights of conscripts.
•    the Ministry of Foreign Affairs only when it comes to foreign policy and international relations. However, the Greek Ombudsman does monitor embassies/consulates of Greece abroad as to their disputes with Greek or foreign nationals.
•    the National Intelligence Service
•    the Legal Council of State
•    Independent Authorities, only when it comes to their main function
•    the Athens Stock Exchange
•    the Greek Parliament
With the exception of Religious Legal Entities and the Judicial and Public Prosecuting Authorities, the Greek Ombudsman does monitor all aforementioned agencies/bodies as employers if an employee faces with unfavourable treatment due to his/her gender.
