“Kalimera, I woke up to more childish vandalism this morning outside the residence and will continue to work with Greek authorities to punish the culprits according to law. Destruction of property is not peaceful protest.”

The members of the group drove up to the residence on five motorcycles and fled immediately after the incident.
