The UN Human Rights Council encouraged Greece to ensure racially motivated crimes are effectively prosecuted and punished.
UNHCR in Greece, together with the National Commission for Human Rights, set up a Network for Recording Incidents of Racist Violence. Eighteen NGOs and other bodies, including the main human rights and refugee rights organizations, participated in the network. Recognizing the need to use a common and reliable recording tool, the network drafted and adopted a “Racist Incident Record Form”. In October, the network launched a pilot programme aimed at systematically recording racially motivated acts of violence.
