Head of Pakistani community to provide information on more than 900 attacks against immigrants

The head of the Pakistani Community in Greece, Javed Aslam, was on Thursday expected to provide evidence to the authorities concerning more than 900 racially-motivated attacks against immigrants over the past 3 years.

In comments made to Skai on Thursday, Aslam alleged that many of the attacks were committed inside police stations.

Alsam said that police officials have repeatedly refused to record incidents reported by the victims of racist attacks.

A report presented to Parliament by Ombudsman Calliope Spanou on Wednesday warned that the “rise in racist violence, the impunity of the assailants and the lack of action from state authorities are undermining social cohesion and the state’s foundations.”
