An Athens pros­e­cu­tor yes­ter­day or­dered an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into claims by the owner of a kiosk in the cen­tral dis­trict of Exarchia ac­cord­ing to which a group of po­lice of­fi­cers roughed him up and tried to steal sev­eral bot­tles of wa­ter from the kiosk on the night of Novem­ber 17 when a rally mark­ing the 41st an­niver­sary of a stu­dent up­ris­ing against the junta turned vi­o­lent. The Greek Po­lice (ELAS) has al­ready asked its in­ter­nal af­fairs depart­ment to probe the claims which the of­fi­cers in ques­tion re­ject, claim­ing that they tried to pay for the wa­ter but were re­buffed. In an am­a­teur video of the in­ci­dent posted on the In­ter­net, of­fi­cers in riot gear can be seen grap­pling with a man next to a kiosk.
