Petsas Refutes Der Spiegel Report Repeating Turkish Disinformation Item

ATHENS – Government spokesman Stelios Petsas on Friday evening rejected afresh a recent report in Der Spiegel magazine which claimed that a refugee had been shot dead by Greek soldiers while attempting to cross from Turkey into Greece two months ago.

Reiterating the fact that there is no evidence that Greece's actions during that time led to any loss of life at the border, Petsas recalled his March 4 statement in which he had called out Turkey's claims as 'fake news'.

Concluding, he questioned why this piece of news resurfaced again two months later, and said that "the Turkish side manufactures and distributes fake news against our country."
