Eleftherotypia - Greece | 21/02/2011

Greece silent on murder of immigrants

For the fourth time the dismembered body of an unidentified immigrant has been discovered at a refuse dump in greater Athens. The left-liberal daily Eleftherotypia condemns the inactivity of the authorities and the indifference of Greek society: "If we do not unite to jointly demand that the culprit be found, all of Greece will have had a hand in this barbarity. Where is the 'Greek coolness', where is our pride? ... Where are the loudmouths who bad-mouth foreigners for swiping their fields and islands, and then remain silent at the authorities' idleness in investigating crimes akin to those of Hitler that have taken place on Greek soil. ... The worst thing is not our guilty silence on these murders of our citizens, of legal or 'illegal' migrants. The worst is that everyone is so quick to justify this silence."

Modern slavery in Greece

Thirty-six migrants from Pakistan and Senegal have been working for months in greenhouses in the northern Greek city of Ioannina without being paid. And now the highly-indebted employers have disappeared. Greece lacks any means of controlling the widespread phenomenon of modern slavery, complains the left-liberal daily Eleftherotypia: "This 'economic method' is common among many businesses on the Peloponnesus, on Crete and in other parts of Greece, and of course in Athens as well. ... Apart from being a disgrace for Greece, the problem is that there is no way of coping with this phenomenon. The same businesspeople will perhaps drop in at the local authorities a day later and demand better treatment from the state. A state, mind you, which allows bankrupt firms to 'employ' workers, hold them hostage on the workplace and neither pay them nor insure them. And in the end this same state then charges these subjugated people with illegal immigration."
