Strict security measures for anniversary of Grigoropoulos’ murder

Greek police will be on alert on Thursday, December 6, due to the rallies to be held to mark the anniversary of the murder of 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos by a police special guard in the Athens district of Exarchia in 2008.

According to sources, over 5,000 police officers will be deployed in the wider region of downtown Athens as part of precautionary measures to prevent violent incidents.

A police helicopter will fly over Athens, along with a number of drones, while several plainclothes police will be patrolling Exarchia, on the lookout for any suspicious activity.

The Syntagma metro station in central Athens will close at 12 noon on Thursday, the Greek Police said, and trains will be passing through without stopping.
