  • [01] New investigation at site of boy's shooting

    Police experts on Sunday carried out an on-site forensic investigation at the spot where 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos was shot dead by a police force special guard on the night of December 6, trying to gather more evidence related to the case.

    The investigation lasted about two-three hours and was conducted in the presence of the 9th examining magistrate who is in charge of the case.

    Also present were the first-instance court public prosecutor in the case, members of the police, representatives for the defence and the boy's family, who have filed a civil suit in the case, as well as their respective technical advisors.

    The additional specialised investigation, which seeks to find evidence to complement the findings of the ballistic report in light of eye-witness accounts claiming that the officer was aiming directly at the group of youths, was requested by lawyers representing the family.

    [02] Greek Press Review

    The Sunday edition of Athens' newspapers at a glance

    The economy, political developments and rampant speculation about an imminent government reshuffle, as well as three new opinion polls, dominated the headlines in the Sunday editions of Athens' dailies.

    ADESMEFTOS TYPOS: "Reshuffle without compromises."

    APOGEVMATINI: "New measures for the financially worse off. Government considering boost to package if [economic] crisis escalates".

    AVGHI: "[Ruling] New Democracy - [main opposition] PASOK setting up consensus because of economy."

    AVRIANI: "Bankers, industrialists, editors....pushing for cross-party government using crisis as ruse".

    CHORA: "Dramatic changes in government. The chess board of the reshuffle. [Prime Minister Costas] Karamanlis preparing for one after holidays to avoid getting 'burned' by the...Molotovs."

    ELEFTHEROS TYPOS: "Molotov society. Explosive cocktail of economy, politics and rage."

    ELEFTHEROTYPIA: "'Flash-and-bang Maximos. Government in despair, votes for firework budget in midst of social explosion and economic storm. [Puns by comparing 'flash and bang' stun grenades used against rioters with present government [with PM's offices at Maximos Mansion] and the Greek derogatory expression describing something gimmicky and lacking staying power as a 'firework']."

    ETHNOS: "Prime minister's elsewhere, scanning opinion polls and looking for reshuffle. MAT [riot police], hood-wearers and 'inner-state' right are governing in his place."

    EPOCHI: "ND-PASOK joint government being promoted. Now they are lowering the masks."

    KATHIMERINI: "Country on the wrong path says 86 percent of citizens asked. Voter ultimatum for changes - Public Issue barometer poll".

    LOGOS: "The prime minister's last political and communications 'weapon'. Reshuffle ante portas. The scenarios for the changes."

    NIKI: "Christmas in a numbed atmosphere. Karamanlis government has demolished the fabric of the country. The 'reforms' have brought citizens out onto the streets."

    PARON: "Pangalos, Verelis statements don't come out of the blue. Colleges brewing." [claims the existence of a secret drive to set up a 'grand coalition' government between two main parties].

    PROTO THEMA: "Mea culpa...with universities and army service. Desperate bid by Karamanlis to wash away the blood." [claims measures by government for universities and army service an attempt to assuage youth anger over teen killing and social discontent]

    RIZOSPASTIS: "Powerful struggle now by workers, farmers, self-employed, youth. All parts of the movement unified against the anti-working class policy."

    TO VIMA: "Greece split in two...crisis divides the citizens." [runs feature on opinion poll showing almost even split between those who want present government to remain and those who don't]

    VRADYNI: "30,000 to be hired outside [Supreme Council for Staff Selection] procedures. The terms and requirements for getting a job. Hope-giving programme to counter spectre of unemployment."
