Council of Europe: Human Rights Commissioner: Greece urged to protect the human rights of persons with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities and de-institutionalise them


"Today the Commissioner published a letter he addressed to the Greek government noting with interest the efforts made by Greece since the mid-1980s in order to end institutionalisation of persons with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities and to develop community care services. However, he is gravely concerned by the instances of deaths and of physical restraint of patients in certain institutions."
