Survey Ranks Greece Worst Offender of Human Rights

    An independent survey conducted by the London-based organization Fair Trials International and the international law firm Clifford Chance, revealed that Greece is among the worst countries at delivering justice through trials right after Poland, Romania and Bulgaria.

    Greece had the highest number of violations – 108 – from 2007 until the summer of 2012. Delayed starts of trial, lack of interpreters and fears about judicial corruption in the Greek courts have been the most common complaints and criticism concerning the violations.

    According to the report, cited by British newspaper The Guardian, Eastern Europe countries have recorded an increase of human rights violations of more than 100 percent in the past five years, which ranks them as a highly problematic region within the EU.
