Scotland Yard aid quelling of dissent in Greece

March 17th, 2009 · post by anon · Make a comment

The Greek mainstream news source Kathimerini announced yesterday that an appeal to Scotland Yard was made by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis to aid Greek authorities in stamping out dissent in the country.

Greece has seen a wave of politically motivated rioting, occupations and direct action since the killing of a teenage boy by a police officer in December last year. The situation remains tense as protests have continued into 2009.

According to the article key figures from the British police force will be offering advice on dealing with dissent across the spectrum from bombings to low level vandalism.
