GREECE: News from Greece

GREECE, 07/04/2014

Yesterday, on 6 April Greek police arrested Despina Kontaraki, a journalist with Eleftheros Typos, one of the country’s leading dailies in the country, and detained her for several hours after she was accused of criminal libel. The accusation was levelled against Kontaraki, publisher Aleksis Skanavis and journalist Giorgos Kouvaras after Eleftheros Typos published an article in which a politician was accused of supporting members of the far right party Golden Dawn. SEEMO is alarmed about this steps by the Greek police and urges the authorities in Athens to guarantees free work for journalists.
