Min­is­ters at odds over jail cell raids

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A row broke out yesterday be­tween Cit­i­zens’ Pro­tec­tion Min­is­ter Yian­nis Panousis and Jus­tice Min­is­ter Nikos Paraskevopou­los over in­spec­tions car­ried out in the cells of four mem­bers of the Con­spir­acy of the Cells of Fire guer­rilla group and a crime boss.

Re­spond­ing to claims on the Indy­media web­site ac­cord­ing to which he gave the or­der for the raids, Panousis de­nied any in­volve­ment, say­ing, “The or­der was given from else­where and by oth­ers who are hid­ing again.” Clearly per­ceiv­ing Panousis’s barbs to be di­rected at him, Paraskevopou­los re­sponded that “the lead­er­ship and staff of the Jus­tice Min­istry are not only not hid­ing but, on the con­trary, they are be­ing tar­geted from all sides.”
