Spiral of violence

Friday’ s attack on Health Minister Adonis Georgiadis during a visit to Attiko Hospital shows that there are people who want to push our country into a downward spiral of violence and civil disobedience.

It should not matter whether or not someone agrees with Mr Georgiadis’s opinions. This type of violent and offensive behavior is unjustified and cannot be tolerated in a democratic society.

The state must find the perpetrators and punish them accordingly. If we start to make excuses for this behavior and not take it seriously, then we face an extremely bleak future.
