Y.B. v. Greece (Application no. 10904/20): the case concerns the living conditions of an applicant who was at an advanced stage of pregnancy in the camp near Thessaloniki, to where she was transferred from Samos. The Court asks the parties if these conditions are compatible with Article 3 and/or Article 8 ECHR. The Court further asks whether there was an objective impediment which prevented the compliance with the interim measures ordered by the Court and whether the Government took all reasonable steps to remove this impediment.
