From the Parliament gate to the prosecutor or a tiny cell at the police station nearby… One man was arrested at the entrance of the Greek Palriament when he gave guards his Identity Card on Monday morning. The new ID scanners installed last week revealed that the man was wanted by police for bounced cheques.
The scanners are directly connected with the Greek police, the Europol and the Interpol.
Instead of visiting a member of the Palriament, the 65-year-old man found himself in a cell in the the police station of Syntagma.
Last week and just hours after the scanner installation, two men were detained before they met the lawmakers they had appointments with.
The one was wanted by police for fraud and forgery, the other for debts to the state.
PS you don;t seriously want to know with which MPs from which political parties the three had appointments and whether they wanted to ask for some kind of favor….
