Police launch crackdown on Roma camps in Corinth and Argos

Police have remanded 95 suspects for questioning following a crackdown on Roma camps in Corinth, south of Athens, and in Argos in the northern Peloponnese, in response to a spike in crime in the areas, the state-run Athens-Macedonia New Agency reported.

The operation includes officers from all over the Peloponnese as well as from Athens and is being supervised by a team of prosecutors.

So far, inspections have been conducted on 212 individuals and 75 vehicles, leading to the 65 Greeks and 30 foreign nations being remanded in custody and 44 arrests.

Charges range from illegal electricity connections and construction to possession of stolen property, illegal firearms and narcotics.
