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 centres and accommodation facilities (including, but not limited to, the police stations, screening centres, and first reception centres within these 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 legal information to detainees and intervening on their behalf on a case-by-case basis

Lawyers are supported by specially-trained METAdrasi interpreters.

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