Laws regarding rape

Pieria abusers unmasked

Police have released the identities and photos of the four men who were arrested last week in Pieria, northern Greece, over the repeated rape of a 16-year-old girl.

According to police, the girl, who is the daughter of one of the men, had been raped repeatedly since the age of 6.

Most rapes in Greece go unreported

There are fears that most perpetrators of rape and sexual abuse in Greece go unpunished as a dearth of medical examiners means only a fraction of cases of sexual assault are officially reported. 

According to the General Secretariat for Gender Equality, around 5,000 rapes occur in the country every year. But only about 150 are certified by a medical examiner.
