Supplementary Submission to the Communiqué to the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court

As submitted in SJAC’s communiqué to the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) in January 2021, the combined treatment of bona fide refugees in Greece by Greek government officials and their agents, along with Frontex officials and their agents, since the EU-Turkey Deal’s entry into force in March 2016, constitutes a widespread and systematic attack against an identifiable civilian population to deter vulnerable individuals from seeking asylum in Europe. The attack amounts to crimes against humanity under Article 7 of the Rome Statute, including the crimes of: deportation and forcible transfer of a population, persecution, other inhumane acts for the deprivation of humanitarian aid, sexual violence, and torture.
