Greece: Initiative for Prisoners’ Rights condemns the police brutality against anarchist comrades M. Seisides & K. Sakkas


Athens, August 10th 2016

The incidents of violent assaults against detainees in the jails run by the Greek police continue unabated. From the former minister of Citizen Safety M.Chrysochoides to the current one N. Toscas it’s as if a day hasn’t gone by. The arrestees Kostas Sakkas and Marios Seisides were brutally tortured by the police officers on duty, because they refused to have their finger prints and mugshots taken, asking to contact their lawyers first.

The prisoners bodies bear the signs of police brutality. Their lawyers have referred to forensic tests validating the claims and a forthcoming legal action against the perpetrators.

The Initiative for Prisoners’ Rights denounces the ill treatment and violation of prisoners’ rights by the authorities and once again unequivocally condemns the violent and arbitrary actions of the police and calls on the Justice System to stop supporting these illegal actions of the police through impunity when cases like this make it to court.
