A list of 125 ticket inspectors was published on an anti-establishment website on Monday, just days after vandals attacked a number of Athens metro stations.

The list was accompanied by a message encouraging anyone who recognizes an inspector to attack them.

“If you recognize someone [from the list] in your neighborhood or your apartment block, treat them accordingly,” it read

Transport workers’ unions have called for more security on the public transport network.

Authorities recently stepped up the police presence at stations, with around half of the officers of the DIAS motorcycle-riding squad now being used to patrol metro stops.
