SYRIZA MP to file suit over treatment at hands of police outside ERT

SYRIZA MP Zoe Constantopoulou is set to file a suit against authorities in connection to an incident outside the headquarters of former public broadcaster ERT on Saturday.

Along with two other leftist lawmakers and Independent Greeks’ MP Rachil Makri, Constantopoulou had attempted to gain access to the building, from which protesting employees were removed on Thursday, but police blocked the entrance.

Constantopoulou claims that she was then crushed against the gates by police officers amid a melee outside the building.

On Monday, the SYRIZA MP filed a complaint with Supreme Court prosecutor Efterpi Koutzamani about her treatment and said she would return to submit a law suit.
