Greek police Fear Further Terrorist Attacks



terrorist attack

Greek police are concerned about the potential for further attacks similar to that carried out against the German Ambassador’s residence last Monday. It is also reported that members of the Greek Special Anti Terrorist Unit (EKAM) will be placed on rooftops and other locations close to potential targets.

There is concern in the government at this development, with statements by the Minister of Public Order, Nikos Dendias, along with a new risk assessment by the police in order to prioritize resources and to identify potential targets.

It is likely that the police response will include increasingly visible patrols by armed officers close to potential targets and a policy of more regular stop and search of pedestrians and vehicles. Furthermore, the number of motorcycle patrols (DIAS) have been increased from 25 to 40 and will be active from midnight to 5am.

The list of potential targets includes embassies, the residences of diplomats and other officials, public buildings, ministries, government and police agencies and diplomatic missions. EKAM will be placing surveillance equipment around buildings that are believed to be at risk.

Officers of the Hellenic Police said that during the attack on the residence of the German Ambassador, the guard who was in a protected bulletproof cubicle, did not react immediately as he feared for his safety.

  1. THE INCOMPETENCE OF NEW DEMOCRACY MP & PUBLIC ORDER MINISTER NIKOS DENDIAS.

    The Greek government continues to raid monasteries searching for the secret Golden Dawn weapons and commandos, all while Leftist para-state groups continue to get away with brazen violence.The latest antics saw the unloading of 60 Kalashnikov bullets at the home of a German diplomat in Athens. Nobody was killed in the attack, but the fact that this is happening in Greece’s best guarded section of Athens demonstrates the incompetence of the Greek government and what little interest Dendias really has about stopping the Left-wing terrorism spree.  At this point it is obvious that the case of murder of Giorgos Fountoulis and Manolis Kapelonis  in front of the Golden Dawn offices last November have been shelved and there is nobody working on them. It is without a doubt that the cold-blooded, sociopathic killers who murdered two unarmed young men without provocation will certainly kill again.   Yet still, instead of protecting citizens and visitors in Greece, Dendias prefers to use police resources to search for Golden Dawn’s secret tanks and commandos.   The Greek people now understand well how careerist puppet politicos like Dendias will continue to sink the nation into poverty, crime, and overall decay.
