Submission of a complaint

7. Can someone have recourse to the Greek Ombudsman on behalf of a third party?

For one thing, this can be accomplished only through authorisation in writing or representation as stipulated by law. Exceptionally, no authorisation is needed if the complaint is being made on behalf of someone who, due to extraordinary circumstances, is in no position to sign it, or if the complaint is being made by an attorney on behalf of a client.

Especially when it comes to childrens rights, a complaint may be submitted by any party directly interested: i.e. the child, the parent/guardian (no joint consensus of both parents is necessary), a relative, a supervisor, or any other individual directly aware of a violation of children’s rights (a neighbour, a professional, a service, an association, a group of minors etc).
