  • Description

    While the government has banned every gathering, rally, march or demonstration in Athens today during the requiem service in memory of the murdered (believed by Communists) Police Chief Evanghelos Malios, some 2000 policemen, steel-helmeted groups, armoured trucks and fire brigade units were set on the alert since early this morning for fears of dynamic manifestation of the right-wing organizations and neo-fascist groups. These measure have been taken by the Security Police in an effort to avoid troubles as happened during the funeral of Malios (December 18th) in which Junta former Ministers and followers attempted to stir up the crowds against the Government. Thus, the area around the Cathedral was closely watched by strong police forces.
