Uniden­ti­fied van­dals dam­aged three ticket val­i­dat­ing ma­chines on city buses in the area of Zo­grafou near the main ac­com­mo­da­tion com­plex for Athens Univer­sity stu­dents yesterday. There had been no ar­rests in con­nec­tion with the van­dal­ism by late last night. Last month, van­dals wrecked 15 elec­tronic ticket ma­chines at the ISAP elec­tric rail­way sta­tion in Eirini, north­ern Athens, shortly af­ter a soc­cer match be­tween Athens clubs AEK and Olympiakos. On­go­ing ef­forts to crack down on fare dodgers on the pub­lic trans­port sys­tem with the in­tro­duc­tion of elec­tronic sys­tems are be­ing un­der­cut by van­dals at­tack­ing ticket val­i­da­tion ma­chines in buses and newly in­stalled bar­ri­ers at metro and train sta­tions on an al­most daily ba­sis.

Coast guard of­fi­cers on Lesvos de­tained a mu­nic­i­pal em­ployee and his part­ner yesterday in con­nec­tion with al­le­ga­tions that they have been sell­ing drugs to mi­grants liv­ing in the is­land’s main refugee camp near the vil­lage of Mo­ria. Ac­cord­ing to sources, au­thor­i­ties found around 300 grams of cannabis in the cou­ple’s pos­ses­sion. The ar­rests were car­ried out early yesterday af­ter au­thor­i­ties on the is­land re­ceived a string of com­plaints from mi­grants liv­ing at the camp al­leg­ing that the cou­ple were deal­ing drugs there. A raid on the cou­ple’s home also turned up 885 eu­ros in cash and a set of pre­ci­sion scales.
