A first step in crime cen­tral

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The sit­u­a­tion in Exarchia has been out of con­trol for too long. It is to­tally un­ac­cept­able that a neigh­bor­hood right in the cen­ter of Athens – and its in­hab­i­tants – have for years been held ran­som to the whims of crim­i­nal gangs of all sorts. The po­lice yes­ter­day fi­nally made a first step in the right di­rec­tion. How­ever, a lot re­mains to be done be­fore the area can be de­clared “safe.” The ques­tion re­mains whether the au­thor­i­ties have the po­lit­i­cal will to im­pose law and or­der and to take on cer­tain groups whose ac­tiv­ity is affecting the daily lives of the peo­ple, as they spread ter­ror in the name of their pur­port­edly an­ar­chist val­ues.
