  • [01] Plan for the combatting of human trafficking

    Greece, through its plan "ILAEIRA" is determined to confront the modern plague of the era, as human trafficking is described, and with the plan, mobilises and coordinates the European Union and each member-state separately. The plan was presented on Thursday at a special event at an Athens coastal hotel by Public Order Minister Vyron Polydoras, in the presence of the European Commission's Vice President responsible for Justice, Freedom and Security, Franco Frattini.

    Also present at the event were Justice Minister Anastasios Papaligouras, Education and Religious Affairs Minister Marietta Yiannakou, Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis Valynakis and delegations from 21 European countries.

    Polydoras described human trafficking as a "hideous phenomenon which has all the characteristics of organised crime."
