An accident occurred in the capital, Athens, of a 16-year-old boy who was seriously injured as a result of police shooting on December 5 in Greece and died today.
The group gathered in central Athens for the late, originally Romanian Kostas Frangoulis, and demanded justice for Frangoulis, “Gypsy lives are precious”. They chanted the slogan.
As a result of the tension between a group of demonstrators and the police, the police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the demonstrators. As a result of the events, many people were arrested and one of the activists was injured.
Activists gathered in the Kamara district of Thessaloniki for Frangoulis, protested in the city center and chanted slogans against police violence.
Train services were also disrupted in the Romanian neighborhood of Aspropyrgos, west of Athens, due to fires ignited near the railways.
While the police took security measures against the protests across the country, bus services were suspended in the Roma areas of Athens as a precaution.
The police followed the boy for not paying for the gas he had bought.
The driver, who fled in the Greek city of Thessaloniki by not following a “stop” warning, was seriously injured on December 5 as a result of police gunfire and was being treated in the intensive care unit.
The statement issued by the Hellenic Police Organization (ELAS) said that the police followed the child after the complaint of the gas station employee who left without paying for the petrol he had bought.
The statement indicated that the police tried to stop the child, who was driving his car dangerously to avoid police pursuit and did not heed the warnings by firing two shots.
According to the statement issued by Ippocrateo Hospital today, the child who had been treated since December 5 passed away this morning.
