One fifteen year old Greek student was killed tonight by the Greek police, at 21:50 Standard Greek Time, in Exarhia Square. The policement claimed that the fifteen year old was part of a group which surrounded their police car and tried to break the windows. The police claims that they used at first flashbang grenades to force the crowd away from the police car. Failing that, one of the policemen fired a bullet from his gun, which alledgedly ricocceded against a marque and struct the fifteen year old in the abdomen.
The fifteen year old was pronounced dead 15 minutes later in Evaggelismos Hospital.
The police car was registered with the Exarhia Square police department.
This is the second time ever since the toppling of the Regime of Colonels where Greek policemen shoot and kill a minor
Police murder 16 year old in cold blood!
There was an identical incident in 1985 when 15 year old Michalis Kaltezas was murdered in cold blood, shot in the back by a policeman called Athanasios Melistas who was later on declared innocent (in the second degree court). And all that happened in Greece... Hellas ... the land were the idea of democracy was born....
