The Greek State has an open front against terrorism, citizen protection minister Christos Papoutsis told parliament on Thursday, and reassured that "no brake" has been put on the investigation into the killing of Socrates Giolias, who was gunned down on July 19, 2010 outside his home in the Ilioupolis suburb of Athens and whose assassination was later claimed by the Revolutionaries' Sect terror group.
"The State has an open front against terrorism," Papoutsis said, adding that "no brake" has been put on the case of Giolias' killing, as charged by Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) leader George Karatzaferis in a current question tabled in parliament.
Papoutsis said that the police and judicial authorities, the police counter-terrorism squad and the EYP (national information service) were working together, and all information was being assessed, double-checked and conveyed to justice. "The goal is to solve this terrorist act and the arrest of the perpetrators," the minister added.
Karatzaferis charged stalling in the investigation and called for acceleration of the procedures and light to be shed on the case.
