More and more university students and professors in big cities of Greece, such as the capital Athens and the northern city of Thessaloniki are coming forward and say what they see and go through daily on campuses.
Among them, Greek citizens too, who might be using the public, -and to a great extent unprotected- spaces to walk their dogs, jog, etc.
Reports that have to do with illicit criminal activities namely drug trafficking, university building vandalism, in some cases sexual assaults or simple thefts increase as time goes by, with many students admitting that, even though they do not come from well off families and they had chosen student halls instead of renting a flat during their studies, had to move because the situation had become unbearable.
According to the Greek state-run news agency, ANA-MPA, “The Athens Prosecutor’s Office ordered on Thursday a preliminary investigation into press reports alleging incidents of lawlessness and criminal behavior inside university campuses.
Ilias Zagoreos, the head of the Prosecutor’s Office, assigned the case to prosecutor Giorgos Kaloudis, asking him to clarify if the reports are valid and to find the perpetrators.”…/IBNA
