Violence doesn’t solve problems, it exacerbates them, says Papademos

Former Prime Minister Lucas Papademos commented on Tuesday that “violence exacerbates existing problems”, referring to the arrest of the 29-year old man who has been accused by the police to be responsible for the letter bomb which exploded in Papademo’s hands last year.

“The fact that a person was arrested who is responsible for acts of violence and terrorism is positive,” he said as he arrived at the Academy of Athens in central Athens, adding that “violence doesn’t solve problems- it simply exacerbates them. Justice will judge the actions and involvement of the man arrested,”.

Papademos, who is president of the Academy, will address Hazim J. Safi, Professor and Chair of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, whom the Academy welcomed as a corresponding member.
