Dangerous tidings

The government appears to have an extremely lax and somewhat confused attitude toward issues concerning the country’s internal security.

Plans for the random release of prisoners convicted for serious crimes has caused serious concerns among those who have some expertise in these matters. The same goes for the unprecedented rash of protests and sit-ins accompanied by vandalism at public buildings.

To make matters worse, now there there is a group of MPs in the government who want to abolish legislation introduced in 2008 to help the state deal with incidents of violence and terrorism.

If we add to this the Greek state’s inability to deal with the growing influx of undocumented migrants into the country, we are looking at a dangerous situation that will only get worse.

The prime minister and the ministers responsible for these issues will find themselves faced with unprecedented phenomena unless they change their way of thinking.
