Legislation - Other Internet Crimes

Withdrawal of confidentiality in communications

One of the most significant steps in Greece taken against child pornography is its inclusion among the charges that declassify communications (Article 4 par. 1 sec. a of Act 2225/1994). Based on this regulation, the Cybercrime Unit of Hellenic Police is now able to take action, find evidence and conclusively arrest suspects for such crimes. This specific regulation is the starting point for the augmentation of child pornography circulation cases brought to justice.
