Human Rights issues

A major human rights issue in Greece is the violence shown by police officers, with disregard for proper procedure, and overall maintenance of peace and happiness. On several occasions people who did not stop for routine traffic checks were beaten, some to death by police officers. Little to nothing has been done about this in the country of Greece, to stop these atrocities. One factor of this brutality is that it is focused on the minority groups of Romanians and Macedonians. One man, who was imprisoned and handcuffed to the bed in his cell for possession of hash, was found dead after his bed was set on fire by an unknown party. Investigations of this crime were put to rest by the local authorities. These utter injustices have led many external civil service organizations to believe that the authorities in charge to be corrupt and in need of serious recreation.
