The security chief at Sunday’s Greek basketball cup final after extensive fan violence which led to the game being interrupted for almost half hour has been suspended.
After a meeting on Monday presided over by Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias it was decided that Brigadier General Nikos Hasomeris would be suspended and a probe launched into 24 police officers for failure to carry out their duty. The game resumed before empty stands. Panathinaikos beat archival Olympiakos 81-78.
