    We have to decide whether the police will secure the law without proceeding to extreme actions and illegal activities, Mr. Papathanasiou said. Mr. Venizelos answered that the government is misleading people with suspicious and ineffective charges.

    "Do we want the government to apply the law within the legal framework or do we want a police force that will only watch the incident and do nothing? A group or some groups can not disrupt the law". Mr. Papathanasiou pointed out stressing that the role of the police must be clear.

    On his side Mr. Venizelos attacked the government stating: "to nourish and acidify technical, fearful and insecure reflexives is an extremely dangerous game" and accused the government of lacking "professionalism and mental and political efficiency in dealing with these issues. Mr. Venizelos called on the prime minister and the competent ministers to "be disciplines, to wisely and responsibly think and to tell the truth to the citizens, to traders of Athens city center and of Thessaloniki".
