Failure to protect trafficking victim breached Article 4 ECHR

Failure to protect trafficking victim breached Article 4 ECHR

Interesting article (in English) on the recent case of L.E. v Greece (Application No 71545/12) (in French) in which the European Court of Human Rights held that Greece had breached Article 4 ECHR by failing to fulfil its positive obligations to recognise, properly investigate and protect a victim of trafficking. There had been a 9 month delay between the victim identifying herself and being recognised as a victim.
