Greek Police Chief Accused by Amnesty International of Racist Comments



 greece-police-migrants 19.12.13

Amnesty International has called on the Greek government to investigate allegations that the Greek Chief of Police advised officers that undocumented immigrants should be detained for as long as possible, and their “lives made unbearable.” This was part of a related announcement posted on the organization’s website yesterday.

The alleged comments were made during a meeting of police officials, reported Hot Doc magazine. The police chief is alleged to have said, “If they told me I could go to a country …, and would be detained for three months and then would be free to steal and rob, to do whatever you want… that is great.” He continued “We aim to increase the detention period ….we increased it to eighteen months…for what purpose? We must make their lives unbearable…” Hot Doc magazine also included an audio of the comments by the Police Chief.

John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s Director for Europe and Central Asia stated that, “If accurate, the deeply shocking statements attributed today to the Greek Chief of Police would expose a willful disregard for the rights and welfare of refugees and migrants seeking shelter and opportunity in the European Union.” He underlined that “the Greek authorities must establish whether these remarks were made and take appropriate action to ensure that Greek law enforcement officials uphold the law and protect the rights of migrants.”

He also posted the following comments on the official Amnesty International website, “In a context where the Greek police have come under increasing scrutiny for alleged ties to the far right party Golden Dawn, these reported remarks from Greece’s most senior law enforcement official cannot be swept under carpet. Confidence in the integrity of the Greek police requires a thorough and independent investigation into the authenticity of these remarks.”

Amnesty International reported last week, how Greek police and coast guard officers have been involved in many cases of ill-treatment and illegal-push-backs of refugees, mainly Syrians intercepted along the Greek-Turkish border. Amnesty International has also highlighted many instances of, “appalling conditions of detention in centers for irregular migrants and asylum-seekers.”

  1. The police chief was right. We shouldn’t go around beating up illegals but we should make things as difficult as possible for illegals (including putting them in prison for violating our borders)

    The self-righteous incompetent trolls at Amnesty International are anti-Greek. Aside from effectively encouraging human trafficking into Greece by manipulatively framing illegals as “irregular migratants’ or “undocumented migrants:, the bigoted pretentious cockroaches pretend not to notice the Skopians transforming into “ancient Macedonians” and irredentism to hide their shame for calling them Macedonians.

  2. Spot on.”Human rights’ organizations are intrinsically a scam. Determining what should and shouldn’t be a human rights is up for debate yet they act like a morally infallible priest class. Rather than be honest and call their organizations xyz political movement, they frame their beliefs as “human rights”. Thus when you question them you aren’t opposed to their ideological beliefs, you are opposed to “human rights”.

    Our leftist imbeciles eat this “human rights” garbage up.

  3. “amnesty International reported last week, how Greek police and coast guard officers have been involved in many cases of ill-treatment and illegal-push-backs of refugees,”

    Pure BS. Pushing back ILLEGALS is Greece’s sovereign right. If the anti-Greek trolls at Amnesty international don’t like it, they are free to ask Greece to send all the illegals to their own countries.

  4. Did SCAMnesty international report on how illegals constantly break laws or bend them, how they disable vessels setting small fires or holes in them, create a flase SOS once in Greek waters. It’s so convenient the immigrants are allowed to manipulate laws purposely disabling their vehicles, so they get towed to Greek soil, SCAMnesty International though points the blame to one side, never blames those violating a country’s sovereign territory by dubious means. The intent of illegals is dubious at best, to pity them is downright moronic considering how well orchestrated their actions are.

  5. “SCAMnesty International though points the blame to one side, never blames those violating a country’s sovereign territory by dubious means”

    And not only that, but they dont’ put context to the huge per capita numbers coming in (that far exceed countries like atlantic facing modern Britain one of the nations that churns out these fake “human rights’ ngos.. while at the same time deporting illegals from their own country) Out TREASONOUS leftists are plain stupid.

  6. What about all those illegal Greeks in EU & Western countries that have stayed on with expired visas?

  7. Amnesty International is attempting once again to grab headlines at Greece’s expense with baseless hearsay and innuendo. They are trying to clear away centrist and rightist political opposition including a strong police force using the misdirected force of public opinion and a program of misinformation periodically distributed as press releases. There are a few better examples than this, where leftist dogma is used to undermine the foundations of government and clear the way for authoritarian socialism than this.

  8. Damn….everybody already what I wanted to say!

    I’ll just have to settle for buying the drinks.

  9. This site just regurgitates leftist propaganda. Usually from the same cut and paste parrots.

  10. They do this because they have learned that given enough time and pressure it works. It’s a very dangerous game they play using the excuse of human rights to topple police forces and eventually governments.
    In a recent incident foreign national Greenpeaceniks attempted to board a Russian offshore dill rig were promptly arrested and incarcerated. Their ship was boarded and may still be held under a seizure order. All have been freed on bond but cannot leave the country. This was a test by Radical Leftists and an example was made of them by the Russian Government. Their stern punishment and associated expense means it will be a long before they try another PR stunt in Russia again. Spoiled children must be sternly reprimanded so they learn the limits of tolerance.

  11. Below is a short list of links, showing the tip of the iceberg of violent crime committed by illegal immigrants against Greek citizens, as well as a very important link showing what a criminal degenerate “Javed Aslam”, the leader of the illegal pakistani immigrant community in Greece is.

    Have you heard of any Greek immigrants, or Greek immigrant leaders in Western Europe or the USA, Australia, Canada, etc threatening the native peoples with “Holy War” ?
    You are nothing but a degenerate anti-Hellenic freak.
    Your psychotic anti-Hellenism is laid bare for all to see.

  15. Next time you type something, know what you’re talking about. There’s no restriction for Greeks in EU states, they have the right to work — as employed or self-employed — without a work permit throughout the EU and in Iceland and Norway. Go back to sleep.
