Reports Say Released Prisoners Behind Greek Violence Spike

November 1, 2017

ATHENS – A lawmaker from the major rival New Democracy party is demanding the government release figures over violent crimes after media reports said they were tied to the early release of criminals by the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA-led coalition.

SYRIZA is riddled with anarchist and terrorist sympathizers and elements who don’t want people put in jail and the release of even violent criminals, many of whom have been let out without a word of protest from the coalition’s junior partner, the pro-austerity, marginal, jingoistic Independent Greeks (ANEL) who claim to be a law-and-order party.

The tabled question was by Member of Parliament MP Nikitas Kaklamanis, the former mayor of Athens, who wanted to know how many criminals have been let out and gone on to commit more crimes after being shown leniency.

Kaklamanis, a radiologist and hospital administrator by training, referred to a “large number of felons, even ones (convicted) for violent crimes, which is a primary reason in a spike in crime,” the business newspaper Naftemporiki said.
