Yesterday a press conference was organized by Stop the War
Coalition Greece with the support of GENOA 2001 and Pakistan Community of Greece
condemning the illegal detentions of 28 pakistanis
immigrants in Greece by secret services of UK and Greece.
During last July 28 pakistanis were kdinapped by greek and british secret agents
after the London bombings of 7th July.
The conference was organized at the Central offices of Greek General
Trade Unions of Workers with the following speakers:
-Pakistan immigrants kidnapped
Javied Aslam, president of Pakistan Community in Greece
Gregoris Fellonis,President Athens Labour Centre
Yianis Sifakakis,coordinator Stop War Coalition Greece
Petros Constantinou,coordinator Campaign Genova 2001-Greece
Giorgos Goudounas, Frangiskos Ragousis,lawyers of kidnapped
The Pakistanis described the kidnapping and bad treatment they had
at the hands of secret agents. They announced that at the same
period (late July) their relatives in Pakistan were also visited by
police and asked the same questions: "What are your relation with
London bombings of 7th of July!"
Lawyers insisted that we cannot know if some others, maybe more
than 100, have already being investigated or even sent ,who knows
where, maybe to Guantanamo!
Both ministers responsible in Greece and UK, Giorgos Voulgarakis and
Jack Straw are denying allegations accusing Pakistanis for lies!
But the greek media today say that Pakistanis speak the truth. A big
newspaper on the front-page reports that the minister is under
pressure to resign.
Greek neoliberal government is moving to open escalation of support
for occupation in Afghanistan and Iraq:
- Last week through US military naval base Suda in Creta tanks
from Hungary were transferred by greek ships to Iraq!
- Greek officers have the control of Kambuls airport and 2
greek soldiers were injured in battle in November.
They tried to cover the case of the 28 pakistanis that happened in
late July 2005 but after BBC reporting and greek media exposing the
names(!) of secret agents their lies have been exposed and they are
now under the pressure of antiwar and democratic movement in Greece.
Stop the War Coalition called a mass demonstration on 21 of January
with demand of resignation of Voulgarakis, legal punishment of all
involved in the illegal detentions. We demand the immediate retreat
of our troops from Afganistan and stop every support for occupying
forces in Iraq.
We expect that this demo can be co-organized from a large spectrum
of forces from trade unions, to political parties, antiglobalization
groups, antiracist and democratic liberties supporters.
