Kyriakos Mitsotakis made special mention of the changes in the Criminal Code and the Code of Criminal Procedure stressing that grievous bodily harm and permanent disfigurement and disability now carry prison sentences of up to 15 years, while human trafficking carries up to life imprisonment.

He added that finally today a new crime has been criminalized, such as revenge pornography, while reminding that the offense of sexual dignity in the workplace is prosecuted ex officio.

In fact, Kyriakos Mitsotakis insisted that bold steps have been taken in the field of investigating and prosecuting the crimes in question. “The last weapon in this fight is the panic button, which allows women to safely inform the Greek Police via their mobile phone, so that they know the location of the incident of violence against a woman,” Mr. Mitsotakis said. who hailed the great work he said the 15900 helpline was doing.
