The Hellenic Police Internal Affairs Department will conduct an investigation into the beating of a 34-year-old police officer, who was found tied up in an apartment in Nicaea early on Thursday morning.
“The case will be fully investigated. All possibilities are being examined. There is something ‘off’ about this story,” police sources told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA).
When rescued by colleagues responding to a call made to the police emergency number, the police officer in question claimed that he had approached his assailants in the early hours of Thursday, at a time when he was off duty, because he had seen a group of people shouting and acting suspiciously and suspected them of trafficking in contraband goods. According to his story, when he told them he was a police officer they had set on him and started to beat him.| | | Next → |
