HOW CAN I HELP

Legal assistance

In view of the mixed migratory flows that the Aegean islands are constantly faced with, METAdrasi offers legal aid to persons entitled to international protection, free of charge, through locally established lawyers in the islands of Samos, Chios, Lesvos, Kos and Leros.

In this context METAdrasi lawyers have assumed the following duties:

  • provision of specialized services of legal support inside detention facilities and accommodation facilities hosting members of the target group (police station, detention facilities, detention centers/ screening centers/ first reception centers, temporary accommodation facilities)
  • briefing of the newly arrived on the right to submit an asylum claim, on the asylum procedure, on the Dublin III regulation and the relocation scheme
  • provision of legal aid in all stages of the asylum procedure
  • identification and support to vulnerable cases
  • provision of information to detainees and intervention on a case by case basis.

The lawyers are supported by specially trained METAdrasi interpreters.

You may find more information in 9 languages at the relevant leaflet by METAdrasi.
