Gov't spokesman expresses condolences over 20-year-old Vangelis Giakoumakis' death

Government spokesman Gavriil Sakellaridis on Sunday expressed the government's condolences to the family and next of kin of 20-year-old Vangelis Giakoumakis, who on Sunday was found dead in Ioannina, northwestern Greece.

"Needless to say that Justice should shed light on this case," the government spokesman said.

"The phenomena of violence against anyone who is considered powerless is a form of social fascism and should not be tolerated by anyone and at any level," he added.

It is the society's responsibility to isolate such practices, Sakellaridis said noting that the State will take all necessary initiatives to this effect.
