Over 370 people detained at teen murder commemoration protest in Athens

Athens, Dec 7 (Sputnik) The Greek police detained 374 people in the capital of Athens during the protests marking the anniversary of the 2008 police killing of teenager Alexis Grigoropoulos, with 135 protesters having been arrested over violation of coronavirus-related restrictions, local news agency AMNA reported on Monday.
On Saturday, the Hellenic Police announced a ban on protests ahead of the notorious murder's anniversary, citing coronavirus-related restrictions on mass events. The Greek opposition decried the ban, accusing the government of abusing COVID-19 to limit citizens' rights and freedoms.
The media outlet said that the majority of the detentions were carried out in the central Athens neighborhood of Exarchia, where Grigoropoulos had been shot dead, adding that the protests were attended by many members of the anarchist organizations based in the neighborhood.
