Violation of Art. 3 ECHR – exception or rule?

A survey we conducted with former beneficiaries

Each and every case we submit to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) is the individual and unique story of a human being in distress. We make every case accessible and show what “degrading treatment” concretely means to the individual asylum seeker in the “hotspots”.
Each interim measure granted underscores our firm belief that these cases are no exceptions, but the manifestation of a system of degradation and human rights violations.

(Note: These figures are from an earlier survey when our beneficiaries lived in the old Vathy Camp.)

0%
of our beneficiaries felt unsafe or had experienced sexual violence in the “hotspot”.
0%
of our beneficiaries reported that they have received expired or mouldy food at least once.
0%
of our beneficiaries had complained about rats/snakes/insects/bed bugs/scabies in their accommodation.
0%
could not wash their hands with soap every day.

Time our beneficiaries had to wait on average every day to get food:

0 hrs

Time our beneficiaries had to wait on average every day to receive 1.5 litres of water:

0 hrs
