The politi­cian suf­fered a cut to the head when he was set upon dur­ing a union rally on De­cem­ber 15. The 68-year-old re­tired OTE tele­com worker al­legedly ad­mit­ted to hit­ting the for­mer min­is­ter, say­ing he was en­raged at the time. Po­lice are seek­ing a sec­ond as­sailant but their task has been made more com­pli­cated by Hatzi­dakis’s re­fusal at the time to press charges or be ex­am­ined by a doc­tor, mean­ing the po­lice could not pub­lish pho­tos of the sus­pected at­tack­ers.
