In this submission, prepared for the Universal Periodic Review of Greece in May 2011, Amnesty International raises concerns about changes to the asylum determination procedure and to legislation on conscientious objection. Amnesty International is also concerned about torture and ill-treatment by law enforcement officials and the routine detention of asylum seekers and irregular migrants and their limited access to legal counsel and medical care.
