Following the resignation of former LS Moldova Director Ana Revenco from GRETA, an election to fill the now vacant seat will be held on 4th June, at the 28th meeting of the Committee of the Parties. 8 nominations from 8 countries have been received, from Iceland, Norway, United Kingdom, Poland, Hungary, Turkey, Spain and Denmark.
Serbia also sent in 3 candidates, but after the deadline. From the 8 nominated candidates, 4 candidates were nominated before. LSI is happy to see that all candidates have relevant expertise to be elected for GRETA. In consultation with our membership, we in particular support the Polish candidate Ms Małgorzata MAKARSKA, a judge and long standing professional partner of La Strada Poland, with long term expertise on the issue of human trafficking. The 3 Serbian candidates – if eligible – were earlier supported by La Strada International and continue to receive our support, might they stand for the elections.
