Greece regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Greece's Criminal Code contains a general penalty-enhancement provision for hate crimes. The Ministry of Justice, Transparency and Human Rights, the Public Prosecutor's Office and the State Security headquarters of the Greek Police collect hate crime data.
In a letter to the Ministries of Interior and Justice following his visit to Greece, the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe stressed the need to enhance the implementation of hate crime laws and to collect and analyze hate crime data more systematically.
ODIHR observes that Greece has not reported on cases of hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech.
