    Greece: Police Abusing Marginalized People

    http://www.hrw.org/news/2015/05/06/g...nalized-people

    Target the Homeless, Drug Users, Sex Workers in Athens

    (Athens) Police in Athens frequently harass and abuse homeless people, people who use drugs, and sex workers, Human Rights Watch said today. Police stops and arbitrary detention of people who live or spend considerable amounts of time on the streets of downtown Athens interfere with their access to healthcare and support services.

    The police stop and detain people who are homeless, who use drugs, and sell sex in the city center as they walk down the street, wait for a bus, or visit a day center where they can eat, clean up, or get support, Human Rights Watch found. Police even stopped outreach workers and a Human Rights Watch researcher on several occasions, detaining them and strip-searching the outreach workers during one stop.
