“The Greek government will continue to consistently serve democracy and the rule of law in Greece, deepening the essential equality of citizens and their individual and social rights and improving their standard of living,” the Greek foreign ministry commented on Tuesday, in response to the publication of the annual US State Department Human Rights Report on Greece.

“The report records, without further investigation, allegations by non-governmental organisations that are not independently verified,” the foreign ministry said.

“Precisely because of this indiscriminate recording, there is the appearance that all countries with a highly developed rule of law have serious human rights issues,” the ministry underlined, while adding:

“Particularly important for the integrity, reliability and objectivity of the report is the fact that the opinion of the Greek state was not sought in relation to the reported issues.”

“Although the progress made with respect to the protection of rights in Greece is recognised on many levels, the report overlooks or completely ignores regulatory measures and national strategies in recent years to protect the rights of vulnerable categories of citizens, such as the disabled, LGBTI and unaccompanied minors.”

The ministry also emphasised that the reports on Greece have always presented similar human rights issues. Particularly in the period 2016-2019, very serious complaints were cited, which gradually disappeared.
