Alt Citizen Protection Min Toskas should have resigned, says Fofi Gennimata

The phenomena of violence have run rampant, stated Democratic Alliance and PASOK leader Fofi Gennimata on Friday, referring to the recent violent incidents in Athens and other cities. She added that Alternate Citizen Protection Minister Nikos Toskas “should have submitted his resignation or been removed a long time ago”.

She also accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of supporting the Alternate Citizen Protection Minister “playing the role of an observer, who disregards and shows contempt for the basic constitutional rights of the citizens”.

She condemned the violence and lawlessness and urged the prime minister and the government to meet their primary duty of protecting the citizens’ lives and wealth, as well as keeping the peace.
