  • [01] PASOK criticises gov't on public security

  • [01] PASOK criticises gov't on public security

    Main opposition PASOK party spokesman Petros Efthymiou on Thursday sharply criticised the government for its policy in the public security sector, as well as Public Order Minister Vyron Polydoras for the policy he is following with the police.

    "All Greeks are aware that over the past three years an increase in common crime has prevailed. The very data, that bear the signature of Mr. Vyron Polydoras, bear witness that common crime is increasing steadily and so in the city and in the countryside, and indeed in the countryside in a double way, the citizen feels this lack of protection for his security. At the same time, hooded people are acting with more unaccountability than ever, as Athens experienced last night and at the same time leading services, such as the counter-terrorism service, are becoming the victim of the same disease of this three-year period, which is the partisanship of the state," Efthymiou said.

    According to PASOK's spokesman, "throughout the entire state, and in the police as well, the partisanship of ND is disorganising the operational capability of the Greek Police."

    Lastly, referring to statements made by Polydoras after meeting Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, Efthymiou said "today, Mr. Vyron Polydoras briefed the prime minister and declared that he is absolutely satisfied with the operational performance of the police. At the same time, the Greek people are judging the operational and political inadequacy of the public order ministry specifically and strictly. But today as well, it became obvious who is responsible for this dissolution: It is the prime minister himself who is covering up for his minister."
