This report was researched and written by Christopher Panico, then a research associate in the Europe and Central Asia division of Human Rights Watch, based on a mission to Greece in September 1997. The report was edited by Holly Cartner, executive director of the Europe and Central Asia division of Human Rights Watch, Jeri Laber, Senior Advisor to Human Rights Watch, and parts were edited by Elizabeth Andersen, Advocacy Director. Invaluable production assistance was provided by Alexander Frangos, Alexandra Perina, and Josh Sherwin, associates, Human Rights Watch.

Human Rights Watch would like to express our deep appreciation to the Greek Helsinki Monitor/Minority Rights Group, and in particular to Panayote Dimitras and Nafsika Papanikolatos, who participated in the factfinding mission, shared their own research, and provided invaluable assistance, guidance, and comment on the draft report. We would also like to thank the many individuals who gave testimony for this report, as well as lawyers, journalists, and government officials in Greece who provided information for this report.
