Greek Anarchist Who Threatened to Torch TV Station Acquitted

July 3, 2018

ATHENS – A Greek court has cleared a member of the notorious anarchist group Rouvikonas of threatening an arson attack on the SKAI TV station even though he made it openly on his Facebook page with his name shown.

Giorgos Kalaitzidis had written that,  “We will burn SKAI down. Today, tomorrow, in 10 years – I don’t know. But we will burn it down. And we will dance around the ashes,” he wrote.

A prosecutor appealed the decision with no reports why the court let Kalaitzidis off the hook for threatening a violent act and with the group to which he belongs rampaging for months with near-impunity as critics said it has the implicit backing of the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

His party is riddled with terrorist and anarchist sympathizers who have applauded violence against targets they don’t like, but not when their party’s offices were hit by those they had lauded for going after others.

Following the prosecutor’s appeal against the verdict, the case will go to an appeals court. Under privacy laws, the names of suspects and even of those convicted haven’t been always released to the media.


ATHENS - Potentially dangerous conditions for the start of wildfires are expected to prevail in eastern Greece over the weekend, including in the Attica region and the Aegean, according to the latest forecast of the Athens National Observatory meteo service(meteo.
