The un­rav­el­ing of a huge drug ring op­er­at­ing in Exarchia this week was hailed by Athens Mayor Gior­gos Kami­nis yes­ter­day, who called for per­ma­nent po­lice pa­trols in the city cen­ter dis­trict which at times had al­most be­come a nogo zone for po­lice. “Un­cov­er­ing the gang in Exarchia is a good start, but more must be done,” he told Skai Ra­dio yes­ter­day, adding that the area had suf­fered from both a lack of polic­ing and, at other times, over­polic­ing. He also re­vealed that, apart from this week’s raids, po­lice also con­ducted more than 50 checks of busi­nesses in the area.
