PM Mitsotakis: The Safety of All of Us Is Our First Priority (Video)

ATHENS – The safety of all of us is our first priority, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said at the beginning of his speech on Wednesday at an event organised by the Ministry of Citizen Protection on security and the reduction of crime.

The prime minister also underlined that no abuse of police authority at the expense of citizens will be tolerated.

He underlined that security is a fundamental good for citizens because it is inextricably linked to stability, social peace, development, the right to progress, it is a necessary condition for the unhindered exercise of every individual and social right. It is imposed not only by the organisation of a state governed by the rule of law but by the very speed with which our world is changing, as well as by the diversification of threats against the social goods of collective prosperity.

The mutation and evolution of criminality is among the new challenges facing the security sector. Others are the exploitation of technology by would-be criminals of all levels and the emergence of new hybrid threats, as well as the undermining of democracy by extremist acts and by extreme rhetoric.

Security for all is a commitment that is being implemented, Theodorikakos says

“Security for all is a priority in practice, a commitment that is being implemented. It is a prerequisite for freedom, economic development and social cohesion. A fundamental constitutional right in every organised state because without security there is no democracy,” Minister of Citizen Protection Takis Theodorikakos said on Wednesday at an event of the ministry on security and the reduction of crime, in the presence of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Referring to police officers, Theodorikakos underlined that they are the people who work hard to protect human life and those who protect Greece’s borders at Evros within the framework of the Akritas project.

The Minister of Citizen Protection underlined that “the law is the law and it applies to everyone without distinction.”


ATHENS - Τhe first new reductions in the 'household basket' are expected in February, Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis pointed out, in a post on social media on Wednesday, while underlining that prices have remained stable for the 14th week.
