Notaries say intimidated with ‘thuggish tactics’


The union representing the country’s notaries issued a statement Thursday condemning the use of “thuggish tactics” by groups protesting foreclosures being carried out at Greek courts every Wednesday.

“The attempt… to intimidate us with thuggish tactics is unacceptable and will not pass,” the union said without elaborating on the type of attacks its members have suffered.

The union also expressed its regret at the alleged participation of a lawyer in an attempt to boycott foreclosures.
