This document highlights the fate of thousands of migrants, fleeing from countries at war or from persecution, forced to leave by hunger and poverty, trafficked for sexual exploitation or forced labour, who each year arrive in Greece. Yet the Greek authorities continue to fail to protect asylum-seekers and migrants, from the risk of human rights violations. Among the violations are the conditions of detention under which asylum-seekers and migrants are detained in Greece, in particular vulnerable detainees such as women and minors. It includes a letter to be signed, detached and sent to the Greek Prime Minister.
