AITIMA continued monitoring the system of administrative detention of irregular immigrants and asylum seekers and offering free legal assistance to detainees through regular visits to detention areas in Attica and Korinthos.
Based on our findings we appealed to the competent authorities so that the rights of the detainees are observed and we also informed the Ombudsman and the UNHCR. 


The issues we raised were related to:
• Medical screening of detainees on admission to the Pre-removal Centres
• Use of administrative detention as a measure of last resort
• Access to the asylum procedure for detainees
• Unhindered processing of the detainees’ asylum applications during detention and after release.
• Protection of LGBT detainees as a particularly vulnerable group.
