  • Description

    INTRODUCTION It's 10 years ago on Thursday (21 April) that the army seized power in Greece and formed a military-backed government that stayed in power for seven years. The Greek people still have vivid memories of the stern regime of the Colonels. The President of the Union of Democratic Centre and a major parliamentary opposition leader, George Mavros, has come out strongly in support of retaining democracy. In an exclusive Visnews' interview to mark the anniversary Mr Mavros said anyone trying to disrupt democracy would not only face the iron will of the Greek people but also their bullets.
