The publisher of fringe newspaper Makeleio, Stefanos Chios, was arrested outside his home on Tuesday, after a lawsuit was filed against him by Infrastructure Minister Christos Spirtzis for a “slanderous” and offensive front page on Monday.
He was expected to appear before a prosecutor on Tuesday afternoon.
“I hope I have a good time. The police have always been polite,” he said in a post on a website he owns, before slamming the government’s time in office as a parody of democracy.
“This is democracy under SYRIZA. Let’s enjoy it.”
