Greece: sweep operation: the alleged ill-treatment and torture of 16-year-old Refat Tafili, an Albanian citizen

Amnesty International continues to receive complaints that Greek police officers have beaten and otherwise ill-treated Albanian unauthorized migrant workers while arresting and/or forcibly returning them to Albania in periodic round-ups often referred to as sweep operations. One such case is that of 16-year-old Refat Tafili. Amnesty International is concerned that investigations into his allegations of ill-treatment have been neither prompt nor thorough. The organization calls for any police officers identified as responsible for his ill-treatment and injuries to be brought to justice and for Refat Tafili to be granted compensation.
