This is a German exchange student Ni Ls (obviously a shortened version of his real name). Yesterday he claims he was assaulted by a number police in Athens and beaten with batons as he stood by himself on a street corner near a demonstration taking place in the centre of Athens, where thousands of people were marching on the 41st anniversary of the 1973 Polytechnic uprising against the junta.

On his Facebook page, he wrote: “Got beaten up by GREEK POLICE. Stood in a street close to a demonstration. Had no weapons, my face was uncovered, I was just standing alone in a corner raising my hands to show I am unarmed. They just beat me down with sticks. I did not do anything, I said nothing. When I was lying on the ground screaming even more policemen came to beat me. Hiding at the place of some very nice greek people now. What kind of country is this where you have to be scared of the police???”

Let’s see what the police and the interior minister have to say about another incident of disgraceful behaviour by the police in the capital.

  1. Absolutely disgraceful and those who did it should be locked up for a long time. But this is Greece, so it won’t happen. Hope it gets a lot of publicity.
