Preliminary report of the international trial observers following the trial against four of the “Moria 6”

I Introduction
§1 From 8 to 12 September 2020, several fires completely destroyed the severely overcrowded Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesvos. One week after the fire, Notis Mitarakis, in his position as Greek Minister of Migration and Asylum, stated on CNN that six young men from Afghanistan had been arrested, and that these six young men were responsible for the fire – a public denunciation which clearly constitutes a violation of the presumption of innocence set out by Articles 6 §24 European Convention on Human Rights (‘ECHR’), and 14 §25 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (‘ICCPR’).
