Pres­i­dent Prokopis Pavlopou­los yes­ter­day vis­ited the site of the for­mer mil­i­tary po­lice (EAT-ESA) head­quar­ters at Eleft­he­rias Park in Athens, where hun­dreds of peo­ple were tor­tured dur­ing the seven-year dic­ta­tor­ship, to mark the 43rd an­niver­sary of the junta’s fall and the restora­tion of democ­racy in Greece. In a speech later, he stressed the need for the sep­a­ra­tion of pow­ers be­tween the ju­di­ciary and the ex­ec­u­tive to be re­spected. ‘Only un­der a democ­racy and the in­her­ent sep­a­ra­tion of pow­ers can man live freely,’ he said.
