Bomb Set Off Outside Mitsotakis Foundation in Greek Capital

January 7, 2020

ATHENS – An explosive device of small gas canisters containing gasoline was set off outside the Konstantinos Mitsotakis Foundation late in the night on Jan. 6, but little damage was done beyond scorching the front of the building’s entrance.

The foundatino is named for the late premier and father of Prime Minister and New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, with the party immediately responding that “no one in the government will be intimidated,” although there was no initial claim of responsibility from any group.

Firefighters were called to the scene to put out a small blaze caused by the makeshift bomb, which was put on a windowsill on the ground floor, and to collect fragments of the device that have been sent for analysis, said Kathimerini.

“Such actions only underscore the need to crack down on lawlessness. And this is a goal on which the government will not back down,” the party added. Mitsotakis has made a crusade of going after lawbreakers and stopping violence, especially in the anarchist-dominated neighborhood of Exarchia where police have gone after drug dealers and raided squats to rid them of unlawful occupiers, which has also included illegal migrants.


LONDON - With polls showing a majority of Britons believing the stolen Parthenon Marbles housed in the British Museum should be sent to Greece, the arguments are growing in the media too, a columnist for The Guardian adding his voice.
