Full light on drug case

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Noor 1 heroin smug­gling af­fair, which made head­lines in June 2014, has ig­nited a fair share of con­tro­versy among the Greek pub­lic. Yes­ter­day, one of the judges in the case was tar­geted in a bomb at­tack, which was thank­fully foiled after the in­tended vic­tim re­al­ized some­thing was amiss. A num­ber of key wit­nesses in the case have been elim­i­nated over the pre­vi­ous months. How­ever, law en­force­ment au­thor­i­ties have failed to pro­vide an­swers to cru­cial ques­tions re­gard­ing the case and a large num­ber of sus­pects still re­main at large. Ex­cept for the ob­vi­ous need to pro­tect the coun­try’s judges who are ful­fill­ing their duty in the midst of ex­tremely ad­verse con­di­tions, it is also im­por­tant that the au­thor­i­ties take all the nec­es­sary steps to dis­pel skep­ti­cism that this case has not been fully in­ves­ti­gated and that guilty par­ties may be get­ting away with their crimes.
