Se­cu­rity slip­ping

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

There ap­pears to be an al­most lack­adaisi­cal ap­proach to se­cu­rity in Greece and, need­less to say, this has cost the coun­try. Just yes­ter­day, we wit­nessed an at­tack on the em­bassy of one of the coun­try’s clos­est friends and al­lies in what should be the safest part of the Greek cap­i­tal. A cou­ple of months ago, an­other em­bassy came un­der at­tack near the main square of the up­scale neigh­bor­hood of Kolon­aki. The at­tack was not even no­ticed for a few days and, of course, no one was brought to jus­tice. It is not just that Greece is pro­ject­ing an ex­tremely poor im­age; the prob­lem is also that if this re­laxed ap­proach to se­cu­rity con­tin­ues, we may see much worse in the fu­ture.
