Greek Minister Says Anarchists Who Painted Israeli Embassy Will be Caught

December 27, 2017

ATHENS – Alternate Minister for Public Order Nikos Toskas said member of the Rouvikonas anarchist group who have been on a rampage of assaults, including throwing paint at the Israeli Embassy will be caught, even though some were detained after entering the grounds of Parliament this year and were let go by Speaker Nikos Voutsis from the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA.

The party has been accused of mollycoddling anarchists in a desperate bid to re-establish Leftist credentials after surrendering to the country’s creditors, including Capitalists and international banks to get a third bailout, this one for 86 billion euros ($101.2 billion).

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said he would never seek nor accept the rescue package because it came with more crushing austerity measures he said he would reject, but he took the money and the conditions.

That has set Rouvikonas off on a spree of attacks against the government and political parties with the major opposition New Democracy saying Tsipras and SYRIZA are looking the other way.

But Toskas, vowed personally to find out who went after the Israeli Embassy, said Kathimerini, after a phone conversation he had with the Israeli Ambassador.
