ATHENS – SYRIZA’s spokesperson Alexis Charitsis in a statement on Sunday held the prime minister and the government accountable for “the chaotic and dangerous situation in Lesvos and what it will follow.”

“Recent developments in Lesvos reveal that the government’s irresponsibility and bad policies on the refugee issue have catastrophic consequences for social cohesion and democracy: gangs terrorize citizens, threaten human lives and security. Austrian and German neo-Nazis act uncontrollably on the island for three days and a refugee school has been burnt. At the same time, New Democracy’s local officials express their pleasure from such actions on the social media,” Charitsis said.
