Greek Prosecutor Claims Her Right to A Fair Trial Was Violated

September 29, 2020

ATHENS — Prosecutor for Corruption Eleni Touloupaki has filed two complaints with the European Court of Human Rights claiming that her right to a fair trial – including her right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty – have been violated in the prosecution against her, according to a written statement released by her lawyer on Tuesday.

According to the statement, Touloupaki has claimed serious violations of her fundamental rights:

"The first concerned the blatant violation of the presumption of innocence by high-ranking state officials and the second [concerned] the serious violation of a fair trial and the presumption of innocence through the manner of the prosecution against her, despite the shelving of the case [against her] by a thorough report of the Supreme Court Deputy Prosecutor."

The lawyer said that the complaints have been officially registered and the European Court will now begin to examine them.
