30/04/2014 – Amnesty International published several reports, in which the organisation raises serious concerns about the persistent practice of push-backs in Greece, and police abuse in Spain and Greece. Amnesty International urges Council of Europe Secretary General Jagland to ensure that the Council of Europe raises allegations of push-backs and ill-treatment at Greece’s border with Turkey with the Greek authorities, and to effectively address the issue of police violence and abuse in his dialogue with the Greek and Spanish authorities.
