Greek Anti-Vaxxers Arrest Principal for Enforcing COVID Measures

December 10, 2021

KATERINI – Getting bolder as they’ve not been required to be inoculated during the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of anti-vaxxers in Greee kidnapped a high school principal, put him in handcuffs and took him to a police station claiming he was arrested for imposing the required health measures.

They tore into the school in central Macedonia and dragged out the principal, who was not identified, but found themselves really arrested when they got the police station with him, said Kathimerini.

They were taken to a security division while the principal was released but there was no indication what charges they would face, if any, as rabid anti-vaxxers in Greece have at times become violent in refusing vaccinations or wearing masks.

“We have reached a level of perfect absurdity. People breaking the law are arresting a Greek citizen and bringing him to the police,” Anastasios Manolas, a local mayor, told SKAI TV. There was no initial reaction from the New Democracy government

He said the school principal resisted his “arrest” and suffered bruises on his hands.

The attackers are believed to be members of a fringe group calling themselves Guardians of the Constitution, who have created several groups on Facebook to circulate antivaxxer content and videos with nationalist rhetoric, the paper said.
