Kathimerini English - - Front Page - BY ELIAS MAGLINIS

In a large-scale op­er­a­tion on Sun­day night, of­fi­cers of the Greek Po­lice’s in­ter­nal af­fairs di­vi­sion made 105 ar­rests at an il­le­gal casino op­er­at­ing in cen­tral Athens, though they were un­able to find any ev­i­dence that mem­bers of the force were in­volved in the racket.

Of­fi­cers raided the Tri­tis Septemvriou Street premises, which oc­cu­pied three floors of a build­ing and ap­peared at first sight to be op­er­at­ing as a cafe. They ar­rested 16 peo­ple be­lieved to work in the busi­ness and 89 pun­ters. They also con­fis­cated 38 com­put­ers used for il­le­gal gam­ing, 27 slot ma­chines, seven elec­tronic roulette con­soles and six card ta­bles. Investigators also found large quan­ti­ties of boot­leg liquor and an un­spec­i­fied amount of cash.
