The president of POASY, Grigoris Gerakarakos, left the panel of the SKAI TV show “Simera”, complaining that yesterday, Wednesday, in the same show, ND MP Babis Papadimitriou insulted the police, calling them “cops”.
During Wednesday’s show, Mr. Papadimitriou crossed his swords over the issue of obligation with SYRIZA MP George Katrougalos, who called for expansion into professional groups such as the police. At the forefront of the official opposition’s refusal to vote in favor of the amendment on the obligation, the ND MP said: “So you are interested in” punching “the” cops “but you do not care about the old people who die?”.
This disgust angered Mr. Gerakarakos, who spoke of insulting thousands of his colleagues and wondered if the prime minister agreed with his MP.
Babis Papadimitriou responded to the president of POASY, talking about a “television issue”, a false claim that he considers the police “cops” and an unnecessary attack against him.
“I want to believe that you did not understand something or that you were a bit confused. That is, you did not realize that addressing my interlocutor, a SYRIZA MP, with an ironic and critical attitude, I accused him that the only thing that interests the official opposition is “to pierce the cops”, a statement that clearly condemns the derogatory perception that space at the expense of the police “, says the ND MP.
The whole announcement of Babis Papadimitriou:
I was informed a while ago that you created a TV show today and that you are publicly succeeding against me by circulating the unacceptable and false claim that I consider the police to be “cops”. I want to believe that you did not understand something or that you were somewhat confused. That is, you did not realize that addressing my interlocutor, a SYRIZA MP, with an ironic and critical attitude, I accused him that the only thing that interests the official opposition is “to pierce the cops”, a statement that clearly condemns the derogatory perception that space at the expense of police officers.
I do not know the motives of the needless attack against me. But I do not allow you to accuse me, in the way you did, when steadily and unwaveringly, even in very difficult times, I am one of the few who defends the work without hesitation and especially the women and men of the Police.
When you are angry and chasing and insulting a person, journalist, MP, you will do well to know his personality, his work and his attitude towards life. Unlike your specific stance, you confirm those who are poisoning our fellow citizens against the difficult work of the police.
