Public order minister set to reopen Acropolis police precinct

The Acropolis police precinct, which was shut down at the beginning of the year, is to reopen.

Public Order Minister Vassilis Kikilias said the station was being opened again to improve security in the city center.

“A safe center means a lot for the daily lives of citizens and for our image abroad,” said Kikilias.

His predecessor, Nikos Dendias, closed the precinct after it was repeatedly attacked by arsonists and amid complaints about detention conditions.
