General Tsigantes’s granddaughter attacked by far-rightists

The granddaugher of General Christodoulos Tsigantes (1897-1970) was attacked by a group of five far-rightists who demanded to see her ID.

The incident, which took place on Stisichorou Street, in central Athens recently, was unearthed after the woman filed a complaint with the British Embassy.

According to the report, the woman, who holds dual nationality, was asked to prove her Greek nationality and speak Greek.

General Tsigantes led the Ieros Lochos Greek special forces unit which was formed in the Middle East in 1942.
