Description

http://www.hrw.org/news/2012/07/10/greece-migrants-describe-fear-streets In a country suffering a deep economic crisis, and after years of mismanaged migration and asylum policies, gangs of Greeks attack migrants and asylum seekers in central Athens and elsewhere in the country with frightening regularity. Human Rights Watch documented the failure of the police and the judiciary to prevent and punish rising attacks on migrants. Authorities have yet to develop a preventive policing strategy, while victims are discouraged from filing official complaints. Greek courts have yet to convict anyone under the country's 2008 hate crime statute. Special Feature: http://www.hrw.org/features/greece-hate-on-the-streets
