Prosecutorial intervention was caused by what Achilleas Beos said in a press conference he gave on Monday.
Achilles Beos in the press conference called the journalists unwashed and dirty who bathe once a month, but care if the city has no water at night” and called for a lynching against them with eggs and yogurts and spitting.
According to gegonota.news, the Prosecutor’s Office of Volos ex officio ordered a preliminary investigation for the offense of incitement to commit crimes, while the incitement to violence against journalists and the attack on university student Fai Tzanetoulakou took on pan-Hellenic proportions.
He launched a vulgar attack against the journalists who, as he said, “slander the place, which has returned to normality. Garbage of journalism, filthy journalists. Unwashed. All of Greece knows me. Same on you. Spit on them and in order not to spoil your saliva, throw eggs and yogurt on them. You are defaming your city. I brought 2 buckets of vinegar and that’s it. At least plug it.’
He claimed that “for me, normality is when the water shuts off at 11 at night. In other countries where there is a drought or water supply problem, they reduce water. When you stream 18 hours, there’s no problem,” he argued.
