In this episode of VC Mytilini, we take an in depth look at the 2018 court case of the Moria 35 together with Vicky, who was one of the lawyers defending the accused during the court case.

The Moria 35 were a group of 35 migrants who were arbitrarily detained on the Greek Island of Lesbos after the police disturbed a protest in the notorious former migrant camp Moria. The intial raid of the camp was only in what was colloquially known at the time as the „African Section“ of the facility, and after only 15 minutes and a staggering amount of police brutality 35 people were arrested. Then, after a year in pre-trail detention the trail took place in Chios.

Together with Vicky we take an in depth look at the trail proceedings, including the strategy of the defense, the nonexistence evidence that the prosecution and how the police brutality and racial profiling impact the case.

For more information on the Moria 35, you can watch this documentary which includes interviews with some defendants, people present at the raid and international campaigners.
