TAGS: Crime

Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias took to Twitter on Friday to respond to an attack on his political office in downtown Athens earlier in the day by four self-professed members of the Rouvikonas anarchist group.

“To the Rouvikonas COWARDS who barged into my office and intimidated, threatened and bullied the staff: I WILL NOT BE TERRORIZED,” Kikilias wrote in a tweet, adding a photograph of a paint-splashed door and one of the flyers the troublemakers threw in the office, reading: “Keep your hands off public health.”

Apart from scattering flyers, the Rouvikonas members – three men and a woman – also splashed paint and caused other damage to the office.

Police have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the incident.
