Incendiary Device Explodes at Old Premises of Zeus+Dione Fashion House

February 18, 2021

ΑΤΗΕΝS — A home-made incendiary device exploded at the former premises of a company founded by the Greek prime minister's spouse, without harming anyone, on Wednesday night.

The explosion at 20:30 p.m. blackened the entrance of 6 Taki Street in the Psyrri neighborhood of Athens, which once housed the fashion company Zeus+Dione that Mareva Grabowski-Mitsotaki founded and with which she is no longer affiliated.

The same building was attacked three years ago, an act claimed by the "Partnership of Unrepentant Anarchists".

Responding to the attack, the office of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said, "this is where systematic targeting leads. The time has come for everyone to assume their responsibilities." It added that "the government will continue without wavering on its path to establishing citizens' sense of security, in respect of the state of law."
