Elisavet Kokonidou

In times of crisis, domestic violence increases, as recorded by calls to the Greek SOS 15900 hotline, which multiplied during the recent pandemic quarantine.

Penalties for domestic violence offenses in Greece are more severe than for corresponding offenses under the Penal Code and are regulated by Law 3500/2006 which, as amended, remains in force.
