The incident of shame does not express the country we want, in the memory of Antonis the State will do its duty, says the Prime Minister in his post on Facebook
The Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, expressed his disgust and horror at the murder of Antonis in Piraeus, in a post on Facebook.
“I particularly stand by the shocking message this tragedy sends: a combination of irresponsibility and cynicism, contempt and indifference. Which eventually turns into violence. And so suddenly, a child from next door to us goes missing…”, says the Prime Minister.
The entire post by Mr. Mitsotakis:
Like all of us, today, I feel disgust and horror for the unimaginable end that a fellow human being met in the port of Piraeus. The mind cannot hold it, nor does elementary morality tolerate it.
I will not refer to what the Justice and the state will investigate and find. Or to the culprits who will be punished for the case. All this will happen. But, unfortunately, they are not enough for the weight of the moments.
I particularly stand by the shocking message this tragedy sends: a combination of irresponsibility and cynicism, contempt and indifference. Which eventually turns into violence. And so suddenly, a child next door goes missing…
Like everyone else, I stand by the victim’s family. But I know that nothing brings him back to hear the apology of a collective reflection. Its loss, however, remains a signal of danger, awakening and retreat.
Yesterday’s shameful event does not represent the country we want. And I believe that no Greek woman and no Greek man would want to see it as his image in the mirror of reality.
In the memory of Antonis, therefore, the State will do its duty. But let each one responsibly serve the role assigned to him. Solidarity with those around him. Because I love life and the place, it means I love people.
