Greek au­thor­i­ties must do ev­ery­thing in their power to shed light on the case of 52-year-old Michalis Zafeiropou­los, the prom­i­nent crim­i­nal lawyer and son of for­mer New Democ­racy MP Epaminon­das Zafeiropou­los who was bru­tally mur­dered with a shot to the chest in his of­fice on Askli­p­iou Street in the heart of the Greek cap­i­tal on Thurs­day evening. The same, of course, ap­plies to ev­ery other mur­der, or as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempt, that oc­curs in the coun­try. There is al­ready a huge back­log of crim­i­nal cases that need to be in­ves­ti­gated. Some of them con­cern ter­ror­ist at­tacks – such as the let­ter bomb at­tack in May that in­jured for­mer prime min­is­ter Lu­cas Pa­pade­mos – while oth­ers cases con­cern or­ga­nized crime. Any self-re­spect­ing state which is se­ri­ous about en­trench­ing a sense of se­cu­rity in so­ci­ety can­not af­ford to leave crimes cases of such mag­ni­tude un­re­solved. Ac­tion must be taken im­me­di­ately to halt this slide to­ward law­less­ness.
