Greek Anarchists Warn Doctor over Bribes: Look out Window

February 27, 2019

ATHENS – After having warned another doctor accused of demanding bribes to perform his duties they would beat him if he did it again, the notorious Greek anarchist group Rouvikonas stormed into the office of another they say did the same and warned they’d throw him out the window if it persisted.

As usual, no names were given and the doctor wasn’t identified as Greek media rarely give the names of people in public incidents or even charged with serious crimes unless they are politicians or named through other sources.

A video posted on an anti-establishment website showed the breaking into the office of the doctor – who was not identified – and with one appeared to be slapping the doctor in the face while others vandalized his office, said Kathimerini.

In a statement, Rouvikonas said that assaulting a doctor blackmailing his patients does not need to be justified. “The action speaks for itself,” the group said.
Taunting police as they continue to rampage with near-impunity, the group earlier in February dared to be caught and then immediately went on another attack.

The anarchists said the Greek Police (ELAS) force was incapable of preventing Rouvikonas from continuing to go after its ideological enemies at will, which has included businesses, bribe-taking doctors, foreign embassies and Capitalist symbols associated austerity measures attached to three international bailouts of 326 billion euros ($369.73 billion)

The group, often throwing flyers, hurling paint and sometimes bludgeoning windows with sledge hammers, said the police will have to use more radical methods to get its members and put a post on Facebook after targeting a fish farm in Paiania, east of Athens.

Rouvikonas said there are hundreds of potential targets in the capital, adding that it is a huge city and the group’s members are not known to authorities even though one was seen strolling with terrorist assassin Dimitris Koufodinas during a vacation he had from jail, visiting spots where his group Nov. 17 killed people.

“All these factors mean it is impossible to prevent actions such as ours that are well rehearsed and need a minimum of time to carry out and have the advantage of surprise,” the post read, said Kathimerini.
