While the German Gvt is applauding itself for the heroic act of getting 50 minors out of the Hotspots in #Greece, the humanitarian situation on the islands is heading for a disaster.
In the meantime, the ECHR has granted another request for interim measures under Rule 39 filed on behalf of a pregnant woman living in the „jungle“ on #Samos.
The Court ordered the Greek government to „transfer the applicant to an accommodation with living conditions compatible with Article 3 of the Convention and the applicant’s particular needs“.
Remarkably, for the first time the Court has explicitly referred to Article 3 ECHR (prohibition of torture, inhumane and degrading treatment) in an interim measure decision concerning a pregnant woman. Thereby, the Court implicitly recognized the (obvious) fact, that the living conditions in the #hotspot on Samos constitute a degrading treatment of pregnant woman.
An evacuation of the pregnant applicant from the camp can be the only response to this decision.
