There they go again… The Council of Europe said the Greek Ministry of Immigration Policy’s plan to register all NGOs and NGO workers would violate human rights.
First Hungary, now Greece. A few weeks ago, the V4 Report mentioned that “Greece was now following Orban’s lead” in regards to NGO transparency.
Now, the Council of Europe will try to pressure Greece, which has had enough of these NGO agitators trying to destabilize their nation.
– COE: “The process of registration would put undue cost and time burdens on NGOs, especially for small organizations. The requirements for registration are very strict, require disclosure of very personal information, and applications have been arbitrarily rejected by authorities, all of which would greatly impede civil society’s ability to function. Thus, it violates the right to privacy and the right to assemble freely, which are both protected in the European Convention on Human Rights.”
* The far-left radicals have grabbed this issue, hoping “the EU’s action in this case can help NGOs in Greece continue their vital work in an increasingly hostile environment.”
Like Hungary, Greece should defy any ECHR order to nullify its sovereign and just decision to demand transparency from the NGOs.
What are the NGOs trying to hide? They need to come clean to allow Greeks and others to know exactly who is funding these activities and the agenda behind the masked faces of the open-border NGOs.
Visegrad should not fool itself that the EU – with all those West EU values- is capable of any type of reform or enlightenment regarding mass migration. It’s just not going to happen…and deep down they know it.
It’s time for a mass exodus from the jurisdiction of the COE and its ECHR.
