Until October 2002, Law 3064/2002 came into force on “Combating trafficking in human beings, crimes of sexual freedom, pornography of minors and generally the economic exploitation of sexual life and assistance to the victims of these acts” (Official Governmental Journal, issue A, article 248 / 15.10.2002) the legislative framework in force in Greece was inadequate as the illicit trafficking of human beings was not punished by case. However, the implementation of the law has created problems related to the recognition of victims and the public services they have to provide, according to the law, protection to victims.
Many victims do not know what trafficking is, they cannot describe themselves as a victim, and this lack of awareness of what happens to them in connection with their self-accusation and ignorance of their rights, results in their deportation without any protection from risks that are lurking at their return, their conviction for illegal entry into the country and / or illegal prostitution. Also, the fear of retaliation by their dealers is so great that it prevents many women from being trafficked.
Since I am not a civilian public functionary nor a party executive, my positions are purely personal and are based on the Constitution of Greece and the existing legislation!
To be simple, as Greek citizens, we already have our rights, freedom of religion and livelihood registered! The Constitution of Greece covers fundamental human rights (freedom of movement, circulation, religion, etc.)
Who and why (not) want the anti-racist proposed legislation draft?
There is a divide in Greek society over the last few days about the so-called “anti-racist legislation draft”. In the opinions and suggestions which are made, I did not see any particular logic, merely a partisan point of view, ideologies and obsessions with what is in force in the Constitution. The Constitution protects human rights and has clearly described legislation. Read More
I consider the most important event of the decade the economic crisis with its political, moral and social consequences. But its causes are deep, multi-level and began at the beginning of the last decade, with the greatly undisguised invasion of the US and the Great Powers in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and the equally dangerous invasion of Georgia in Ossetia and Israel in the Gaza Strip. All this, combined with the corruption and waste of public money in the US, Africa and the European Union, has led us to the present situation. The economic crisis has created insecurity for every citizen and has led them to reduce their costs as well as a significant deterioration in the standard of living. On this development, large corporations have cut their production, causing workers to be dismissed, and unemployment rates rising. I hope that in the next decade there will be no loans and no support for the citizens by the banks. Mostly, however, I wish the citizens, people find the mental courage to stand again on their feet without suicide, domestic violence and other modern scourges worse than financials.
