Kam­menos suit against writer heads to court

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Athens Court of First In­stance is to­day to hear the le­gal suit lodged against jour­nal­ist An­dreas Petroulakis by De­fense Min­is­ter and In­de­pen­dent Greeks leader Panos Kam­menos over a crit­i­cal ar­ti­cle.

Kam­menos has sued Petroulakis for a mil­lion eu­ros over the piece, which was pub­lished on the web­site pro­tagon.gr two years ago, a move that has prompted wide­spread crit­i­cism. In a post on Face­book, New Democ­racy leader Kyr­i­akos Mit­so­takis joined the cho­rus of dis­ap­proval. Not­ing that free­dom of speech and the right to crit­i­cize are “non-ne­go­tiable,” Mit­so­takis called on Petroulakis to “hang in there.”
