Charges Brought for Drug-Related Offenses in Greece, 2010

"Every year the Greek REITOX Focal Point collects from the Central Anti-drug Coordination Unit – National Intelligence Unit (SODN-EMP) data on charges brought for drug-related offences. In 2010, the Greek DPAs23 brought 13,176 charges against 12,805 individuals for drug use, production / cultivation, dealing / trafficking and other drug-related offences (see ST11). As shown in Figure 9.1, the decline in both the number of individuals charged with drug-related offences and the number of drug-related cases observed in the three-year period 2005-2007 reappeared in the years 2009-2011. More specifically, the number of individuals returned to the levels of 2004 and the number of cases to the levels of 2006-2007."
