COMMITTEE AGAINST TORTURE
Thirty-third session
15-26 November 2004

CONSIDERATION OF REPORTS SUBMITTED BY STATES PARTIES
UNDER ARTICLE 19 OF THE CONVENTION
Conclusions and recommendations of the Committee against Torture
GREECE
1.
The Committee considered the fourth periodic report of Greece (CAT/C/61/Add.1)
at its 630th and 633rd meetings, held on 22 and 23 November 2004 (CAT/C/SR.630 and
CAT/C/SR.633), and adopted the following conclusions and recommendations.
A. Introduction
2.
The Committee welcomes the submission of the fourth periodic report of Greece and the
opportunity to continue its dialogue with the State party. However, the Committee notes that the
report does not fully conform to the Committee’s guidelines for the preparation of periodic
reports and lacks information on practical aspects of implementation of the Convention’s
provisions.
3.
Noting that the report covers the period from November 1999 to December 2001, the
Committee appreciates the update provided by the delegation of Greece during the consideration
of the report and the replies to most of the questions raised by the Committee. The Committee
emphasizes that the next periodic report should contain more specific data and information on
implementation.
