The IRC has joined 15 other civil society organisations calling on the Greek government to take three key actions:

  1. Immediately repeal the national list of safe third countries set out by JMD 42799/2021, as amended by JMD 458568/2021.
  2. Publish previous and upcoming opinions of the Director of the Asylum Service regarding the designation of safe third countries, which should be made available to asylum seekers subject to the application of the list according to the European Commission.
  3. Stop dismissing asylum applications as inadmissible based on the “safe third country” concept.
