Athens Bar Association Says Greek Referendum Unconstitutional


The Athens Bar Association adopted a resolution on Tuesday in which they indicate that the upcoming referendum on 5 July includes some unconstitutional elements and has no clear content, after an open meeting of its governing council.

The resolution was approved with 18 votes in favour, 4 against and one who abstained. About 70 lawyers attended the meeting who were protesting for not taking a decision on the referendum.

Earlier, the representative of SYRIZA, Vasilis Papageorgiou, noted the Bar must distance itself from this issue and that the questioned posed in the referendum is clear.
