The down­town chal­lenge

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice ef­forts to crack down on ram­pant crime in places like Menidi, north­west of Athens, are in­deed praise­wor­thy. How­ever, there are still hun­dreds of re­ports made ev­ery day by Greeks and for­eign­ers in­di­cat­ing that purse snatch­ers, pick­pock­ets and all sorts of small­time crooks are the bane of many parts of down­town Athens and pub­lic trans­porta­tion across the cap­i­tal. Even the mayor of Athens has la­mented the level of petty crime in cen­tral parts around Syn­tagma and Mona­s­ti­raki: What a per­fect place for Ci­ti­zens’ Pro­tec­tion Min­is­ter Nikos Toskas to re­ally shine.
